Bekasi County collaborates with Lyrid to support Startup development. On Wednesday July 6th, Lyrid and the Bekasi County Government discussed about a Startup Development Program. The program that will be implemented hopefully can increase the growth of the creative industry and economic recovery. Here at Lyrid, we are committed to supporting the startup community in areas where startup ecosystems are underdeveloped.
Bekasi is a satellite city in Indonesia that supports DKI Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, especially in the economic sector. Thus, it has very high potential in terms of technology development to compete in industry 4.0 sectors. Therefore, this program has specific objectives:
- Produce new entrepreneurs who can compete in the global market.
- Create job opportunities and raise people's standard of living.
- Capture the creativity of the younger generation in a positive way and make it a productive generation.
- Become a place to start a business from a smaller scale.
- Empowering Startups and Home Industry
- Nurture local talent and create synergy between entrepreneurs and local government
The Bekasi County Government will create regulations to support the progress of industry 4.0 in Bekasi County and provide facilities needed for the program. The government will help make an inventory of any startups in Bekasi. The startups that are registered will be selected, assessed, then their development and sales strategies will be assisted by Lyrid to make them a lot bigger and successful.
After they’re selected, they need to take assessments to measure how far their business is currently running, and to find out what steps to be focused on during the camp period. Lyrid will provide the infrastructure and development platform for Bekasi startups to build, manage, and deploy their applications and enable them to go to market and scale faster. In addition, Lyrid will help incubate and accelerate local startups with the support of the local government.
