SI Alumni Forum in Indonesia – Food entrepreneurship

It was a bright Saturday morning on the 21st of November, 2015, when we began arriving at the Swedish Residence in Jakarta. It was only 8.30 am, but the organizing committee was already there, as well as other participants who come from as far as Aceh and Makassar. Smiles were stretched, handshakes exchanged, name tags on – it’s time for the first Swedish Institute Alumni Forum 2015 in Indonesia!

The Swedish Institute Alumni Forum (SIAF) is a new initiative from SI to maintain and strengthen its alumni network. A pilot project for 2015, this forum is held in three selected countries: Indonesia, Belarus, and Uganda. The Swedish Institute fully sponsored this event, allowing alumni from other cities (and other islands!) to come and participate as well. It was such a privilege for us, Alumni Swedia, to be hosting this forum in collaboration with the Swedish Embassy in Jakarta.

Attended by about 60 alumni, the day’s schedule is packed with 3 different sessions, all of which aimed to provide alumni with aspiration and inspiration on how entrepreneurship – using our best skills, passion, and network – can create a better Indonesia. Moreover, we have chosen food entrepreneurship as our sub-theme because food unites people and it can open doors to countless opportunities, whether or not you are in the food industry.
