Steven Vanada Vice President
The beauty of internet business is its potential disruptive capability to solve problem at a massive scale using technological leverage. In Indonesia, I believe these opportunities are still vastly explorable with one of the higher upside in emerging markets. My strategy is to focus on the basic fundamentals that is yet very inefficient in the conventional business. For the past few years, I have been focusing on E-commerce, marketplace (horizontal and vertical), payment and education. Currently performing extensive due diligence in the fintech and healthcare sectors. My personal believe is that entrepreneurs who take the longer term approach growing alongside the markets are the ones whom will win the market.
