As we glide through 2022, it’s almost the end of the year. 

Welcome to Impact Hub Jakarta NEWSLETTER October 2022

September was not only a busy month for us but also a very special one too. We hosted our biggest event to date, F20 Forum 2022, a side-event related to G20, as Indonesia has the honor of chairing the G20 Presidency this year. 

As always, we also hosted diverse events, from our communities’: “30 Days of Lunch (TDOL)” Podcast Community’s Meet Up and Community Gathering, to MRTJ (Mass Rapid Transit Jakarta)’s Smart City Acceleration via their Mentoring Dinner and Networking, to mark the conclusion of their “MRTJ Accel x Future City Accelerator”.

For our own programs, we kicked off a new program, NEST Guild Mentoring Program on Financial Readiness and Business Resilience, in collaboration with the New York-based NEST organization who empowers artisans around the world with capacity building.    

On the APAC front, Impact Hubs across the Asia Pacific are prepping for their first regional gathering post-pandemic, hosted by Impact Hub Dhaka, on 10 – 14 December 2022. 

Happy reading. Hope you enjoy this Newsletter edition. Let’s stay connected and continue to make an impact wherever we are.
