Jakarta, 16 July 2020 – After the success of the SYNRGY acceleration program batch 2, BCA and GK Plug and Play are ready to start the SYNRGY Batch 3 Accelerator Program. With the same commitment, the program aims to support the growth of start-up ecosystem in Indonesia. SYNRGY Accelerator is a manifestation of BCA’s contribution in responding to the vast emergence of different types of start-ups.

Also attending the Kickoff Day was Aaron Nio, Director of GK Plug and Play. “From the sourcing stage, we have seen the potential of the finalists. They show very good potential and as they receive coaching such as mentorship and prepared curriculum, the startups will become more mature. Not only that, we also organize workshops and community events to further help develop their potential,” said Aaron.
During the program, all startups receive briefings through one-on-one mentoring sessions, sharing sessions with experts from various fields, and workshops on various topics. These startups will also be linked with BCA group business units through private meeting sessions and given an opportunity to collaborate with Central Capital Ventura (CCV) & Grup BCA, as well as media highlights.
