“We collaborate with universities, students, and various related parties such as foundations, corporations, fintechs, and individuals to create a sustainable and mutual edtech ecosystem. It is by connecting related players in one place in order to present educational solutions,” Susanto said.

Through this program, students only have to upload report cards and later get a letter of university acceptance instantly whether they meet the minimum criteria. (maximum 1 hour),” he continued.

The Covid-19 pandemic which limits the mobility of many people seems to be used properly by GoKampus to convince users that their services can be trusted to register for college.

“We started holding virtual counseling for students to get services around lectures or careers. We also work together to present Campus Webinars with various parties to educate students amid the study from home situations. Together with GoKampus, campus life can be easier, more productive, and enjoyable,” Susanto said.

In terms of the business model, Susanto said they take fees for the B2B service. This year, they are targeting to work with 300 to 400 campuses with 300 thousand registered users.
