Jakarta, 30 September 2020 – For three months, all start-ups at SYNGRY Accelerator Batch 3 have been following various guidance and briefing from experts in various fields. On Wednesday (30/9), BCA and GK-Plug and Play graduated 10 start-ups that had committed and successfully completed the SYNRGY Accelerator program. SYNRGY Accelerator is a clear demonstration of BCA’s commitment to develop a start-up ecosystem created by Indonesian youth to move forward, driving Indonesia’s economy.
Amid the pandemic’s uncertainty nature, it did not stop or hinder the implementation of the SYNRGY Accelerator program. All start-ups zealously participated in the programs that have been adapted, starting from sourcing process, interview, selection day, workshop, mentorship and Demo Day, all of which was conducted virtually.
Through the SYNRGY Accelerator, BCA gives full support to the performance of the Indonesian youth who has incredible potential in the start-ups they have built. “The year 2020 is a challenging year but that doesn’t mean we lose the will to continue to work. These start-ups are proof that even in difficult times they remain eager to innovate, because we believe that wherever there’s a problem, there’s a business opportunity,” said Adi Prasetyo Susilo, SVP of Digital Innovation Solutions of PT Bank Central Asia Tbk.
On the other hand, GK-Plug and Play, the official partner of the SYNRGY Accelerator, shares the euphoria of success of the Batch 3 start-ups after completing the program. “From the initial selection process, we already knew that they have potential. And after joining the program for 3 months, they have become more mature, not only in their products and marketing skill but also business strategy. We hope that after graduating from this program, they can further develop and we believe that the innovations they offer are solutions to the various problems that we are facing,” explained Aaron Nio, Director of GK-Plug and Play.
Hosted by Rene Suhardono Canoneo, an Author, Public Speaker, Life Coach, Non-Executive Board Member and C Level Advisor, the Virtual Demo Day is exciting and full of enthusiasm. “I am fascinated by the energy and idealism of the startups. As one of the leading financial institutions in Indonesia, BCA plays a great role in supporting and promoting these startups. Indonesia, even the world, needs more this kind of collaboration,” said Rene Suhardono Canoneo.
