2,355 crowdsourcing and crowdfunding sites
As the web industry continues to gain momentum in Indonesia, there are hundreds of newly established IT startups that are leveraging the web to deliver their products and services. Some have been very successful and have become highly profitable - GantiBaju.com is a prominent example. Using crowdsourcing, GantiBaju.com is one of the most exciting startups in Indonesia. In its first year, GantiBaju.com has won several awards including Asia's Top 10 Best Web Apps by Singtel Accelerate in Singapore, and boasts more than $22,000 in monthly revenue.
Ideas become reality when they meet the required resources for implementation. However, getting those resources is not at all an easy task. In this collaboration era, we now have an alternative solution: get the resources from the crowds out there. In Indonesia, we can do it on BursaIde.com.
BursaIde.com was founded from real problems that happened in Pesantren Wirausaha Daarul Muttaqin, an Islamic boarding school for entrepreneurship. Some brilliant ideas from about 350 students could not be executed because they lacked the resources. “We find that the ideas which are successfully implemented have something in common. They got resources”, said Muhaimin Iqbal, the founder of BursaIde.com who is also running GeraiDinar.com, an investment platform for Islamic gold, Dinar.
