[…] Unlike other institutions or organization that offer merely classes or courses, SVATA’s approach is more experience and knowledge-based, which gives participants the opportunity to roll in Silicon Valley. I hope to use all the network and knowledge that I gather during the bootcamp to take my company to the next level,” said BukaLapak’s Co-Founder and CFO Muhammad Fajrin Rasyid, one of the bootcamp’s participants.

SVATA’s scheme is to use holistic approach by providing and giving the opportunity to learn, join  proper events, e-class, and bootcamp in Silicon Valley. According to SVATA’s Executive Director Shinta Dhanuwardoyo, the program’s objective is to connect and encourage global collaboration between tech ecosystems, especially those in developing countries.

“This approach is done to present the experts, not only in technical realm, but also in networking and entrepreneurship. I, on behalf of SVATA, wants to help startups to reach that goal, in order to create global-scale products which will make Indonesia one of prominent players in global digital industry,” she stated  while introducing IDByte and Bubu Awards (5/8).
