KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Sept. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Wild Digital, the region’s premier tech conference powered by Catcha Group, is bringing back Wild Digital Indonesia 2021 for its 4th edition. Part of their conference series, the event is happening virtually on 8-9 September 2021, and will be expecting 80+ speakers, 20+ live sessions and 800+ attendees over the two days.
In recent years, Southeast Asia has shifted into innovation high gear to overtake global competitors in the region, thus reshaping and changing the rules of the game. Ahead of the pack is Indonesia, whose growing pool of unicorns and "soonicorns" tech startups are making waves as regional giants, primed to play in the global arena.
Wild Digital’s theme for the year is Indonesia: Fueling Southeast Asia, the Next Digital Powerhouse – and aims to highlight this leading market that is poised to pave way for Southeast Asia’s post-pandemic boom.
"The past year and a half have been quite a ride, but we’ve also witnessed a tech boom in Southeast Asia during these extraordinary times! Amazing things are happening in this part of the world, and we’ve had great entrepreneurs and companies making the international headlines.
This is why we’re eager to bring back Wild Digital Indonesia for the 2021 edition. As SEA’s largest market economy, Indonesia has had a hand in producing some of the region’s most well-known unicorns and rising tech stars," said Patrick Grove, Co-Founder and Group CEO of Catcha Group.
