Indonesia is surfacing as one of the most propitious markets for fintech verticals in the region. Propelled by its huge population of 260 million people and as a market viewed to have great growth potential, the fintech industry has overall experienced a transformation similar to India’s a year before.
It is now a prime space in the archipelago, with flourishing investments, expansions and new product launches to solve the needs of the people. Up and coming fintech verticals have also been contributing to the financial industry’s revamp in the country, paving the way for a new future of financial inclusivity.
Here, we highlight five promising fintech companies that will be making an appearance at Tech in Asia Jakarta 2017 this November 1 & 2 to showcase their products. Check them out below!

They also provide 24/7 in-app chat support and cash back deals on specific products that allow users to earn Ayopop credits after a purchase.
2) EZi Wallet
Riding on this fintech wave is also EZi Wallet, a Singaporean mobile payment app with a local twist – it can be used at F&B outlets, including hawker centres. The app functions as a Stored Value Facility platform with value added services like ordering, payment and loyalty programmes.
The team behind EZi Wallet is also dedicated to designing and implementing solutions to suit the needs of their clients, including the elderly. Their patented solutions are supported by grants from local government agency SPRING Singapore, and have won accolades such as the Top HDB productive tender award.
