BigBox for example, this startup is a product that is engaged in big data which is expected to be able to answer the government’s vision regarding One Data Indonesia.

Through BigBox, local governments can integrate data from various sources including social media. Thus, local governments will have better insight which is expected to improve services to citizens.

Another example of Leap’s product is PaDi UMKM which is a digital platform that connects SMEs on the one hand as sellers with BUMN as buyers. Through PaDi MSMEs, MSMEs in various regions can become vendors for all SOEs as partners standby buyer.

To realize Leap’s vision, a huge amount of digital talent is needed. However, currently in Indonesia the number of digital talent is less than the need. Therefore, collaboration with campuses is important in order to accelerate the growth of this digital talent.

We started collaborating with several well-known campuses in Indonesia such as ITS, USU, and so on. The programs carried out include guest lectures, internship programs, and others that are expected to be able to close the distance between the needs of the digital industry and the outputs produced by universities.

We realize that the various visions above certainly need time to be realized. But again, by collaborating with various parties, we feel that this can be accomplished more quickly.

Therefore, for other parties who share our vision above, let’s explore the potential for collaboration that we can do together! For a better Indonesian digital ecosystem!
