Innovation Camp for Indonesian youth

July 2016 │ Indonesia

Yayasan Karya Salemba Empat (KSE) is a foundation providing scholarships to underprivileged university students in Jakarta, Indonesia. Through Deutsche Bank’s Born to Be programme, we support 15 scholars in the Scholarship Programme, providing financial support as well as life skills training and mentorship.

KSE hosts an Innovation Camp annually for selected students. The camp hosts 200 students from 28 universities to be first trained in related areas such as entrepreneurship, socio economics and presentation skills.  It then culminates in a business case competition.

The student finalists showcased their innovations and achievements to a panel of corporate judges, including two from Deutsche Bank, and the winner received support for their innovation.

The two Deutsche Bank volunteer judges evaluated proposals under two main categories, Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation.

One of the Deutsche Bank judges commented, “The participants have great ideas. Though they are not introducing ground breaking innovations, their proposals are practical, cost efficient and most importantly use local resources to meet local needs. Given the right support and capital, these ideas will not only be beneficial for the individuals but also for their community.”

Among the innovations, outstanding proposals included tools to increase the productivity of farmers, an alternative product to reduce dependency of imported commodities, a healthier choice of food, and a new phone application that promotes high level security for the user.

The Deutsche Bank volunteer judge added, “This valuable programme not only gives talented Indonesian youth the opportunity to reach their full potential, but also shapes them to become an example to others and contribute to their community”.
