After receiving funding from Google, the 14 teams received additional funding from Kedaireka
The Bangkit 2021 career development program officially announced 15 selected teams offering the best ideas. The 15 teams will receive $5,000 funding from Google or Rp71 million each to support product development to market in the fields of health to the environment.
Bangkit is a career development program initiated by Google with the Ministry of Education and Culture, Gojek, Tokopedia, and Traveloka. In the first batch of the Kampus Merdeka, the Bangkit 2021 program has graduated 2,250 participants.
Google Indonesia's Product Marketing Manager, Dora Songco said to DailySocial that all participants were required to work on a group final project with one of the strategic topics from the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) and the National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence.
Furthermore, as many as 483 teams had to complete a final project from the specified theme involving three Bangkit curricula, machine learning, cloud computing, and Android mobile development. Dora said that the final project was designed to explore various problems in Indonesia, from general themes of education, economic defense, health services, to specifically discussing waste management.
"The selected participants have gone through the selection results by a panel of expert judges from academia, technology, and business. Currently, 15 teams are ready to realize three-month achievements and implement projects as planned. Funding support can later help turn the project into a sustainable business initiative," Dora said.
Although it has not been officially announced, his team plans to continue the second batch program next year with a similar activity structure, in which there are three learning paths that are the same and continue to run as part of the Merdeka Campus.
