A Very Full & Startup-esque Week

Okay last week was an amazing one. It's a change from my routines albeit a welcomed one :) A lot of things happened in just 1 week both personally and professionally.

First of all, my very own startup Ktemu is on a new milestone on the roadmap. Before actually launching later this coming months, I decided to go directly into the market. Ktemu is targeted as a B2B and also B2C startup. Not too worried on the latter part so I went head first with B2B.

I got a meeting scheduled with the COO of one of Indonesia's biggest brands holding company and also one of the biggest media holding in Indonesia. To tell you the truth, Ktemu was a hit instantly. What we offer is just what they need. They even gave me a few insights about the market which they will also dive in this coming month. A good quote from the COO is "Analyzed analytical data is the future for businesses globally". Quantifications is gold.

Fortunately for Ktemu, this is what it is all about. We got off on a good start and best of all, Ktemu is free for all :) More about Ktemu will be posted on Ktemu's website in time.

Next up is the #StartupLokal gathering in Oh La La Cafe, Thamrin. It was a blast. According to #StartupLokal mailing list, a total of 94 registered participants were there. Important topics about building a startup was talked. All the big players and early startups were there. However great it is that night, it was also quite disappointing :( The community grew big and needed a better venue to meet up. Coffee shops won't fit, not anymore. It also felt less focused compared to the first meetup. We need to find a proper space.

I would love to write more paragraphs from my experience at the second #StartupLokal meetup but sadly for now, 1 paragraph is all I have :(

So there it is, my full & startup-esque week. Hooray for #StartupLokal!
