Indonesia is a very large country, with more than 269 million inhabitants. In Indonesia there are more than 26 million SMEs scattered throughout Indonesia, unfortunately, these SMEs still use simple technology such as brochures, social media, and posters in finding employees. We want to change the way and digitize Indonesian SMEs. Our idea is to create a platform to centralize job advertisements from SMEs and companies of course into one ecosystem, so job seekers can easily choose the right job.
My Heikaku is in the Seed round. At present Heikaku has more than 4,000 jobs and 2,000 companies.
Heikaku has helped spread 69 million applications and more than 1 million web traffic with an average consumption time of 12 minutes. all these developments with a $ 0 (zero) marketing budget.
We see the potential for our startup, with our 9-month progress statistics from launching (July 2019). so we just released a version of the app for Android and iOS.
Jobseeker trends have never been greater than the situation we are currently facing COVID19. The current situation gives a very high spike. As of April 14, 2020, there were 1.6 million layoffs in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia.
