More city-run co-working spaces to be built
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta administration plans to establish more co-working spaces for young entrepreneurs in all its municipalities.
Jakarta Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Agency (UMKM) head Irwandi said that the municipalities wanted to build spaces similar to the Jakarta Creative Hub, a city-run co-working space on the first floor of the Graha Thamrin building in Central Jakarta.
"Every municipality will have one. This includes the Thousand Islands [regency]. We will try to build it in all areas," he said as quoted by kompas.com on Tuesday. Jakarta has five municipalities.
The administration will start building the spaces across the capital in 2018.
The plan is to provide young entrepreneurs with more facilities to develop their creativity and entrepreneurial skills, he explained.
"They can try to develop their abilities and skills there but we will set them with a target. Within three months, they must show improvement," he said. (agn)
