#Asia Regulations: helping or hindering innovation in Indonesia?


Gain exclusive insights from Northstar Equity Partners’ Patrick Walujo on how regulations will shape the technology and innovation landscape  in Indonesia.


Due to the fast, ever-changing nature of the technology and entrepreneurship, policies and regulations have come to a point where a game of catch up is constantly played. The question remains, do policies constrict innovation, hindering progress? Or, are regulations there for a reason – to draw perimeters for innovation to disrupt with a pre-set purpose?

Who are the ones in position to set the national agenda?

Find out more with Patrick Walujo, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Northstar Group who will be giving a keynote on ‘How Regulation will shape Technology & Innovation in Indonesia’ on the Start Stage at Echelon Indonesia 2016 this April.

The Northstar group, formed in 2003, is one of Indonesia’s leading private investment firms today. Together with its partners, Northstar has invested US$2 billion in various sectors, including energy, financial services, consumer and retail, industrial and communications, with a belief that these sectors will continue to benefit from the substantial demographic and economic shifts that are occurring in Southeast Asia, including significant increases in productivity and consumption. Northstar is also one of Go-Jek‘s early investors.

In addition, Patrick sits on the Board as Chairman of KADIN, a committee set out out to manage regulations for tech and startup developments across Indonesia.

He started his career at Goldman, Sachs & Co. in London and New York. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Operations Research & Industrial Engineering from Cornell University, USA.

In 2009, Patrick was awarded Ernst & Young’s prestigious ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ award. He also is a member of the International Advisory Board of the Council on Foreign Relations New York.
