Before I left Indonesia to pursue my tertiary education in the United Kingdom back in 2014, I recall there was little buzz around ICT and the infrastructure supporting it was notably poor, startups and mobile apps weren't really a thing either and there wasn't any ride-hailing or e-commerce solutions available (commercially at least). During my time abroad, I relish at the seamless integration of technology into my daily life. The likes of Uber, Ocado, Deliveroo, and Amazon have drastically changed my lifestyle. Everything was so convenient, I would never be able to enjoy this in Indonesia, certainly, so I thought.

Kedasi, Tanjung Duren

Thanks to the the coworking boom in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta, you can find coworking spaces and serviced offices at pretty much every corner of Jakarta, well maybe not every corner but in areas like SCBD, Sudirman, Thamrin and Kuningan, you're spoiled for choice. The major CBD areas in Jakarta are saturated with top flexible workspace brands such as WeWork, COCOWORK, and IWG (Regus). Fierce competition drives many other operators to establish a presence elsewhere, and in all fairness, it does make good business sense. Not every company is looking to secure a luxurious office space on the 47th floor, overlooking the Jakarta skyline... let's not kid ourselves, anyone would jump at the chance if the budget forbids!

GoWork, Pacific Place

Jakartans are no strangers to the odd-even policy which has been implemented since May 2016 to replace the 3-in-1 policy. In preparation for hosting the 18th Asian Games, the Indonesian government has intensified the policy as a necessary means to anticipate and accommodate the increased traffic flow in Jakarta. By now most of you should already be aware of the alteration made to the rule but for those who aren't, the vehicle restriction odd-even policy area has expanded to include places such as Arteri Pondok indah, Jl. Rasuna Said, and more. To top it all off, it will be in place for 15 hours a day (including weekends), starting from 06:00 - 21:00 with the intention to ease mobility for travelling athletes and officials.

EV Hive, Kuningan

Often times when people talk about coworking spaces it is accompanied by words such as community, learning, support, and networking, but what do these words really mean? Social gatherings and hosting events are great ways to help coworking spaces make sense of all that. In an increasingly competitive landscape, coworking space operators are constantly looking for ways to create added value.

Social gatherings are almost always present in a coworking space. GoWork regularly hosts monthly events such as Tasty Thursdays to provide fellow members a platform to build relationships, exchange their ideas and collaborate on projects over food and drinks. This helps to foster a sense of community which helps with retention of current members.
