The Most Accessible Offices in Jakarta with the MRT

Mar 22, 2019 5:32:59 PM / by Michael Wu Gunawan posted in Jakarta, Coworking Space, serviced office, flexible workspaces, MRT Jakarta, commute


The wait is (almost) over! After 6 (grueling) years of constructing the MRT - a project that began in 2013, Jakarta is finally ready to launch their first major transportation breakthrough. Inhabiting approximately 30 million people, (Greater) Jakarta is the most populous city in Southeast Asia and a solution to the infamous traffic honestly could not come any sooner. With the option of taking the MRT, the road along the main commercial areas where the restaurants and shopping malls are would be less congested. The MRT route is set to also include major business districts in the city meaning many offices buildings around the area will receive that much needed accessibility, easing the everyday commuters journey to and from the the workplace.

This article will discuss in detail about the MRT as well as top serviced offices and coworking spaces that will benefit from it.

Save Money in Jakarta With Cashback and Mobile Apps

Mar 15, 2019 4:25:51 PM / by Michael Wu Gunawan posted in Jakarta, tips, work-life balance, guide, tech startups, industry insights, Mobile Apps, emoney, fintech, lifestyle


Bank regulations, creditworthiness, and geographical challenges of an archipelago have strongly contributed to limited access to banking solutions in Indonesia. A staggering 66% of the population, or around 180 million Indonesians, are unbanked. Yet, there are many ways to engage the unbanked, like creating an alternative credit scoring system or digitizing private sector wage payments, but what took the center stage is e-money (electronic money). e-money is great because it's a very convenient way to top up, particularly for people living in the rural areas, it doesn't require a bank account to setup, and there's no monthly fee attached that's typically seen in banks. With a high mobile penetration rate among the unbanked (7 out of 10 people who don't own a bank account owns a mobile phone) and low usage of financial services among smartphone users in the country (less than 40%), Indonesia is a very attractive market for fintech (financial technology) companies to come in and provide alternative digital banking solutions and other services. Needless to say, entrepreneurs, banks, and conglomerates caught on pretty quickly and competition in the industry has become very intense, very quickly. Currently, there are over 100 apps more or less with an e-money/e-wallet concept in the market.

While they're fighting for market dominance, end consumers are reaping the benefits. Just by being informed and tech-savvy, you can exploit and leverage it to help you make the most out of your money! There are also other extremely practical apps that can potentially help you to save big on dining, entertainment, and fitness options in Jakarta that will be discussed further below.

Feb 27, 2019 11:07:19 AM / by Michael Wu Gunawan posted in Jakarta, Coworking Space, work-life balance, guide, city guide, entertainment


Read in Bahasa

Golden Triangle of Jakarta or Segitiga Emas Jakarta is an area extending from Central Jakarta to South Jakarta. This imaginary area is enclosed within 3 main roads of Jakarta that form each side the triangle; Jalan Jenderal Sudirman/Thamrin, Jalan Gatot Subroto, and Jalan H.R. Rasuna Said/Kuningan. The Golden Triangle makes up the center of Jakarta and coincidentally also the main Central Business District (CBD) in the city. Aside from the skyscrapers and offices, the most prestigious shopping malls in Indonesia are also located within this area, making it the busiest region in the city and consequently also the most congested area in regards to the traffic. Discover everything you need to know as a professional working in Jakarta's Golden Triangle including the best dining options, fitness corners, bars, and other neat tips for ideal work-life balance!

Feb 8, 2019 5:55:19 PM / by Dee Shuhaida posted in Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Hong Kong, Singapore, Meeting Room, venue, Training Room, flexible workspaces


We've all been there - caught in a chilly, windowless training room with other participants, tuning in to some moderator ramble on about who knows what. As you've presumably accumulated from that poor soul, it's not always easy to lead trainings, meetings, or conferences. Truth be told, it tends to be a difficult task to keep the crowd engaged (and alert) while covering all the vital information.
