StartupLokal Meetup V.86 Disability Tech: Create a More Inclusive and Improving Life of The Disable
Disability innovation should be a growth area of interest for startups because there’s plenty of opportunity, especially in Indonesia. About 10 million Indonesian people have some form of disability, which is 4.3 per cent of the population, according to a data released by the Australia Government and Monash University in Australia Indonesia Partnership for Economic Governance about Disability in Indonesia.
In this #StartupLokal Meetup, we are glad to be able to invite the founders of Indonesia disability tech startups who try to make people's lives with limitations even better with their innovation. We present Rubby Emir - CEO of Kerjabilitas.com, the first career network website specifically for people with disabilities in Indonesia to connect with providers of inclusive employment in Indonesia. Last but not least, we also invite Taufiq Almasyhur - Co-Founder NextIn Indonesia & Product Manager LexiPal, a learn-to-read platform for children aged 5-7 years with reading difficulties and dyslexia. Both Rubby Emir & Taufiq Almasyhur will share each of their perspective on Disability Tech, compiling wide pictures of this for each of one us!
