Going to Indonesia for free ? You surely do not want to skip this !

When reflecting on Indonesia, the common association might be limited to Bali or Batam for many. I, too, once held that perspective. However, my perception transformed after immersing myself in the country for two years and gaining profound insights. This shift led to a bold and decisive move: establishing a representative office in Jakarta earlier this year.
In recent years, the COVID pandemic reshaped our approach to business, compelling us to innovate and think creatively. In today’s rapidly evolving industry, remaining stagnant is not an option. Embracing change and taking calculated risks became imperative for success and growth.
Personally, it forced me to step out of my comfort zone and question, “What’s the worst that could happen if I fail?” So there I was, making that first phone call and when the borders opened up I took the first plane to Jakarta.
My Personal Insights on Indonesia
Initially, I assumed Indonesian companies are a step behind Singapore in corporate practices. However, this notion was quickly dispelled as I discovered numerous professionally managed Indonesian corporations that have significantly expanded over the years. These companies are now actively seeking top-tier solutions for their internal systems, including accounting, legal, and data analytics, as well as for their projects.
Doing business in Indonesia is challenging, especially considering many businesses are still family-owned, more often than not emails are left unread and success is largely dependent on trust and familiarity, which take time to build. It is crucial to have a strong network with the government and businesses for company development in Indonesia to be successful.
Luckily, in my experience over the past 2 years, I’ve discovered that making connections in Indonesia is quite straightforward. If you invest time and effort in meeting local business owners and partners, it’s not a challenging task. Indonesians are open to collaborating with foreign entrepreneurs, as it boosts their brand reputation.

Why explore Indonesia now?

Indonesia, with 60% of its population of working age, is strategically positioned for the next 10-15 years. The Jokowi Administration’s reforms focus on boosting exports, digital workforce training, creating jobs, and relocating the capital to East Kalimantan for inclusive growth. Investments in infrastructure, education, healthcare, and employment open opportunities for local and foreign businesses, particularly in technology, creative, and industrial automation sectors.

As Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube, aptly said, “Opportunities, the good ones, they’re messy and confusing and hard to recognize. They challenge you.”
Remember, two years ago, I was exactly in your shoes, not knowing anyone in Indonesia. But I chose to invest my time and effort, getting to know the right people and understanding Indonesia firsthand.

Now, I would like to ask you: “What’s the worst that could happen if you give it a try?”
