April is an exciting month for the Jolkona team 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 next month. 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 Frianto Moerdowo, CEO and co-founder of The Jarvis Store. The Jarvis Store helps small business owners sell their products online by providing a free, professional e-commerce platform. The Jarvis Store started their venture when they recognized that small and medium enterprises in Indonesia needed to be online in order to be successful. You can check out their platform themes and demos at https://jarvis-store.com/template.
