It is an exciting week at the Jolkona office as we prepare for the arrival of our next Jolkona Catalyst cohort! The eight social entrepreneurs in the Jolkona Catalyst program, a mentor driven accelerator for founders from developing countries, will journey from Indonesia to Seattle this weekend. During the three-week program these social entrepreneurs will work with mentors, innovative thought leaders, seasoned business professionals, and startup founders here in the vibrant Seattle community.
Today’s featured entrepreneur is Tety Sianipar, CTO and co-founder of Kerjabilitas. Kerjabilitas is a platform that fights unemployment of people with disabilities by connecting them to employers and opportunities. Tety is looking forward to learning more about conducting customer research through the Catalyst program in order to improve the user experience of their platform. She is also excited to network with mentors, social entrepreneurs, and possible collaborators in Seattle!
