Jolkona is excited to invite Indonesian entrepreneurs to apply for our Fall 2015 Jolkona Catalyst! This will be our first multi-country program with entrepreneurs from Bangladesh and Indonesia joining the Jolkona team for three weeks of intensive training and mentorship!

In 2014, we hosted two stellar cohorts of entrepreneurs from Indonesia. Click here to learn more about Cohort 1 and Cohort 2. We are thrilled to host another Indonesian cohort from October 19 to November 6, 2015. We will accept applications from both Indonesia and Bangladesh until our deadline of Friday August 7, 2015 at 23:59PM. 

We can’t wait to welcome more inspiring young entrepreneurs from Indonesia and Bangladesh this fall!
