Focusing to industries that facilitate startups is the best way to assist entrepreneurs to grow themselves and their business,” e27’s Founder and CEO Mohan Belani added.
Most of services available at Marketplace are cloud, SaaS, and standalones that target B2B consumers. There are also hardwares, such as Pouch’s NFC Wristband. Nanoprivate’s edutech platform called “Elearning for Student Indonesia” is also there among other Asian or global players.
