Amid mushrooming digital startup companies in the country, Creative Economy Agency (Bekraf) head Triawan Munaf said that the agency was planning to hold a startup incubation program next year to accelerate the growth and replicate success of startups.

“This will be our priority program next year, in cooperation with bubu.com we will incubate potential digital startups and assist them in developing,” Triawan told reporters on Wednesday evening after a press conference for 2015 IDByte.

“As part of the incubation program, we also plan to allocate a budget next year to send the potential startups to Silicon Valley,” he continued, adding that the budget was still being calculated.

Triawan previously said that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo had tasked the agency with supporting the digital industry, including game and application developers to prevent them from becoming one-hit wonders or ending up selling the apps to foreign enterprises.

“We want them to be able to continuously contribute to increasing our foreign exchange income, to become the new Indonesian billionaires, like the founder of Facebook,” Triawan said. “We will do as much as we can to encourage them to keep developing the products in the country by providing supportive regulations and incentives,” he continued.

Founder and CEO of web developer bubu.com Shinta W. Dhanuwardoyo also said that the incubation program was important since the country was still lacking a proper incubation program for digital startups.

“We proposed the program to Bekraf and we plan to cooperate with foreign digital startup experts,” said Shinta, who is also the initiator of IDByte, the country’s biggest biannual digital event, which will be held from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2.

Comprising road shows, workshops, exhibition, conference and awards night; the Bubu Awards, IDByte aims to encourage the local digital industry and contribute to the country’s economy.

“The fast-growing technology and digital industry provides a good opportunity for the industry to further contribute to the country’s economy,” Shinta said.

“By holding IDByte, we expect to pave the way for the local digital industry to take part and become an important player in the global industry, not only as a consumer,” she continued.

Meanwhile, Bandung Mayor Ridwan Kamil, who also attended the event, said that regional administrations should also support the growth of the creative economy industry, including technology and digital.

Ridwan said that the city would officially launch Bandung Technopolis, a technology and innovation-based central business district, next year.

Ridwan said that Bandung Technopolis, which occupies 800 hectares, would provide space for a learning center, playground as well as business activities. He added that foreign digital companies ranging from Google and Facebook to new digital startups could collaborate in the district.
