The event was held online from March 22nd to April 12th. It consisted of three online workshops, followed by interactive mentoring sessions with our in-house business experts, and it finished with a Demo-Day.

We started with four collaboration groups, each representing a commodity from Sintang. Each group consisted of local Sintang businesses mixed with businesses outside of Sintang to act as their potential partners to grow the businesses on a larger scale.

The first group is Tengkawang or Illipe butter. Members of the group include Sintang Orangutan Center (SOC) as the illipe butter producer and nature conservationist in Sintang, YAGI Natural as a local natural cosmetic producer always looking for sustainable materials, and Musimpanen as a natural ingredients marketer and distributor. The group joins forces as a natural product business consortium which provides cosmetic illipe butter produced with sustainable values for the beauty and wellness industry.

The second group and the second commodity is Cacao. This group aims to be a provider of high quality cacao derivative products for the beauty and wellness industry, providing a sustainable and consistent supply. Members of the group consist of CU Kelin Kumang , Sintang’s own cooperative-based cacao supplier, working with over 100 farmer communities, and YAGI Natural, a local natural cosmetic producer.

The third group is Craft, which consists of Jasa Menenun Mandiri (JMM) and Krealogi from Duanyam. They aim to be a supplier of Sintang craft products, specifically natural woven fabric and plaited goods made from non-timber forest products with nature-based dye. These products are handmade by local women, making each craft unique and infused with local culture and wisdom.

The fourth group is Albumin, which derives its product from snakehead fish. The group consists of Sintang Freshwater Care (SFC), in charge of the aquaculture in Sintang, Agrapanabio, in charge of research and development of albumin derivative products, and Synergy Naturals (SPL), in charge of marketing and distribution. They strive to be a trusted albumin producer and contribute to the wellness industry with albumin’s postoperative wound healing characteristic, also as a supplement for cancer, stroke, and diabetes treatment.

During the final week of the program, another group was formed. Unlike the other commodity-based group, the last one is a research-based one, namely the Commercialization Research group. Consisting of Synergy Naturals (SPL), this final group will act as a product and market researcher for all commodities in phases, focusing on customer needs.

On April 12th we held an online Demo-Day where all the collaboration groups pitched their business proposals in front of panelists Mr. Kartiyus, SH, M.Si, (Head of BAPPEDA Sintang), Lishia Erza (CEO, ASYX), Samantha Tedjosugondo (Vice President, SEAF), Dhita Rachmadini (Consultant and Associate, CLUA), and Fajar Anugerah (Co-Founder, Supernova).
