uqwo.com – NextDev 2022, CSR that Strengthens Telkomsel’s Business Ecosystem , Telkomsel is holding the NextDev 2022 incubation program. Shown with a new logo and color, Telkomsel’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) program is deployed to strengthen the company’s business ecosystem, more than just a social responsibility program.
In today’s modern marketing era, CSR is a company activity whose main goal is to reduce business risk. The existence of CSR keeps the business smooth and uninterrupted and supports business sustainability. This view is taken by Telkomsel in developing its CSR program.
NextDev 2022, which carries the theme #SustainBeyondExpectation, is aimed at strengthening the fundamentals of Indonesian digital startups so that they can develop sustainably. This program will attract potential startups and carry out development through assistance in increasing knowledge, skills, and utilizing leading-edge digital technology.
“Since being introduced in 2015, NextDev is Telkomsel’s flagship CSR program. We will conduct a roadshow and get potential startups from all regions in Indonesia. Furthermore, we want these startups to be able to develop and enter Telkomsel’s business vertical which has now transformed from a telecommunications company into a digital company,” said Saki Hamsat Bramono, Vice President of Corporate Communications Telkomsel at the NextDev 2022 Kick-off event in Jakarta, Tuesday ( 13/9/2022).
As an effort to reinforce this commitment, Telkomsel continues to carry out ongoing evaluations to provide relevant support and in accordance with the latest startup needs . One of the transformations carried out is changing its focus this year to fixing startup fundamentals , namely by further increasing knowledge and expertise in running a digital business that is appropriate and adaptive to change.
Thus, Indonesian startups will have a stronger foundation to be able to grow sustainably and unlock all potential progress more optimally.
NextDev 2022 is now designed and placed as an enabler for early stage digital startups . This program is also the starting point for Telkomsel’s sustainable digital startup empowerment ecosystem , such as Tinc as a startup development platform (accelerator), and Telkomsel Innovation Partners (TMI) which supports startup stability through strategic investment and long-term collaboration.
There is also INDICO as a subsidiary of Telkomsel which is a holding company for digital innovation generators. INDICO often helps business growth measurably by maximizing value creation in product development, business incubation, and strategic investment.
To realize its mission, NextDev 2022 is presented with a series of programs, ranging from NextDev Talent Scouting, NextDev Academy, to NextDev Summit. This year, NextDev opens opportunities for digital startups in the game & gaming platform , Health & Education, Tourism & Creative Economy, and Green & Clean Tech sectors to take part in improving their business fundamentals.
