Doing Business in Indonesia

Event Highlight
At the moment all our events are virtual due to COVID-19 and Jakarta being in a (semi)lockdown since April 2020.

Our events are held in various formats, ranging from our monthly breakfast session and company visits to virtual events and networking ‘borrels’. Below we highlight a recent event:

On 26 February 2020 DBN hosted a ‘first’ with ‘DBN Draait Door’. A talkshow, inspired by De Wereld Draait Door, hosted by DBN co-founder Erik ten Have. This first edition hosted 3 guests:
– Cliff Go, Organizer of the upcoming Formula E race in Jakarta
– Dirk-Jan Oudshoorn, Founder of Forestwise
– Sandra Pompe, Coordinator for the Economic Mission to Indonesia in March 2020.

It was an inspiring evening, with thanks to our talk-show guests and talk-show host and the 40+ viewers.
