Galeri Indonesia WOW! is part of ICSB Indonesia initiative under ICSB Indonesia to support SMEs in Indonesia. Under the program, we have helped the government of Indonesia, especially the Ministry of Cooperatives and SME, to rebrand the SMESCO UKM Gallery as a Start-Up Incubator Center in Indonesia, named the Galeri Indonesia WOW!.
In order to further strengthen its purpose, we have successfully encouraged companies including ASTRA International, Blibli.com and many other Indonesian businesses to support Galeri Indonesia WOW! and make it as the country’s first one-stop SME Center in Indonesia.
Galeri Indonesia WOW acts as an incubator for SMEs and also exemplifies implementation of the spirit of Indonesia WOW! Movement, which was declared by President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo on 18th of September, 2014.
The Galeri Indonesia WOW! concept focuses on 5 main points to ensure the sustainability of SMEs, they are (1.)Creativity (2.)Opportunity (3.) Productivity (4.) Profitablity (5.) Reinvestment.
This concept can be seen on a giant mural at the Galeri Indonesia WOW.
Galeri Indonesia WOW consists of 5 zones, (a.)Co-Working Space, (b.) Maker Space (c.) Pop-Up Store (d.) Curated Concept Store, (e.) Creativity Stage. The soft launch of the gallery was held on 22nd of October, 2015.
