The Future of Impact Investing in Indonesia - Dondi Hananto, Patamar Capital
Oct 19, 2020 Season 1 Episode 8

With a population of over 261 million, Indonesia is considered as one of the most attractive and active markets for impact investment and social entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia. According to ANGIN (Angel Investment Network Indonesia), large amounts of capital are being pledged to the country, with more than 100 impact investors scouting the market. 


There is tremendous potential for impact to be done, as the country’s 100 cities are still lacking in good city planning, and face multiple historic challenges like aging and inadequate infrastructure, in a report by PWC Indonesia. There is also large-scale development without regard for the environment, including extensive urban sprawl, effectively causing harm to the environment and its people.


With such large impact problems that are growing faster than impact solutions can resolve, what can be done to quickly address these urgent sustainable issues? And how do tech startups help to overcome these challenges?


To answer these questions, I speak to Dondi Hananto - Partner, Patamar Capital, a resident of Indonesia, who is in the heart of the action, for his expert insights on the future of impact investing in Indonesia.
