Indonesia is just getting started on the Internet, but interest is rapidly growing in this massive market of 240 million people. The country is on the map especially in the tech industry in Japan and (to a lesser extent) Silicon Valley, which is why a new conference called BOOST is trying to connect these three regions.
The inaugural event describes itself as a “non-profit conference that helps local Indonesian startups grow into scalable companies” and will have some A-list entrepreneurs and venture capitalists from Japan and the US as speakers (see below).
Entrepreneurs who want to have a chance to take part in “small group mentoring sessions” with the speakers and other BOOST attendees, can apply here (deadline: December 19, 2011).
General attendees can get tickets here.
Here are the BOOST conference details:
Date: January 17-18, 2012
Venue: Intercontinental Jakarta Midplaza
As you can see above, the line-up of speakers planned for the event is pretty impressive. It includes Dave McClure (founder of 500 Startups), Jia Shen (co-founder of Rock You), Hiro Maeda (co-founder of Open Network Lab), Jameson Hsu (co-founder of Mochi Media), Brent Hurley (founding team member of YouTube), Akimitsu Sano (CEO of Cookpad), Steven Goh (CEO of mig 33), legendary game creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, and others.
