DycodeX Wins Rice Bowl Awards 2018 as Best Ecosystem Initiative in Indonesia

By | Events, News | No Comments

Startup growth in the world is increasing, and each other is competing to make their company the best. Every region in the world has the prominent startups, as well as in the Asian region. That’s why the New Entrepreneurs Foundation (myNEF) – a non-profit organization that focuses on creating and developing sustainable entrepreneurs – celebrates the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship in the Southeast Asian startup ecosystem by holding the ASEAN Rice Bowl Startup Awards.

What is The Rice Bowl Awards?

The Rice Bowl Startup Awards are the official Southeast Asia circuit for the Global Startup Awards. The Awards are divided into several rounds – nationals, regional and global. This year, the regional (South East Asia) reward innovation, excellence, and best practice in startups across the region. From all over Asia, there were 2500 startups listed in Rice Bowl. From Indonesia only, there were 280 submissions – including DycodeX. One interesting point from this year’s ARBSA was from 9 countries that entered the nomination, there were 6 female founders who became the winners.

Miss Lyliana, CEO of myNEF explained during the ARBSA 2018 Indonesia Awarding Night in Jakarta on October 5, 2018, that Rice Bowl is not a pitching company because according to her, what often becomes the winner in the speech competition usually sounds good, but not as good. So it would not be fair for the Asian companies that have good qualities but are limited to language and presentation constraints.

The Indonesian Winners

As one of the finalists of ARBSA 2018, DycodeX actively participated in promoting the event. If you follow our social media you would notice that at the end of September to early October, we shares a voting link so that the public can participate in choosing the best startup according to them in several categories. But voting is not everything. It’s just a way to move up the ladder. In fact, voting only affects about 10-15% of the total assessment. The criteria for the finalists of ARBSA are startups that stand less than 5 years, and the judges will make the assessments.

DycodeX made it into 4 nomination categories, namely Best Food / Agri Tech, Best IoT, Startup Of The Year, and Best Ecosystem Initiative. And we won the Best Startup Ecosystem Initiative Award 2018 in Indonesia. While the other Indonesia winners were:

DycodeX and The Indonesian Government Talked About LPWA Regulations

By | News | No Comments

IoT technology development in Indonesia still runs – perhaps in a slow pace, but surely catching up fast. Along with the proliferation of technology companies that are starting to focus on IoT, the Indonesian government must start providing adequate infrastructure, and adjust the existing regulations to support the acceleration of this technology.

For this reason the Indonesian government began to prepare various things to create a conducive environment for the IoT development. The Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kominfo) invited various telecommunication companies and startups engaged in the IT field to jointly explore network regulations for IoT.

DycodeX, along with Elnusa, represented the IoT industry in the preparation meeting for second trial of LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) network regulation in Indonesia. This meeting was initiated by the Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kominfo). It was held in Divisi Digital Service Telkom, Bandung Digital Valley, Bandung, on October 1-2, 2018.

The topic we discussed was the scenario of LPWA rules testing, to find out the potential for interference with cellular waves. Some of the other things discussed include frequency that will be used, duty cycle, power, and other specs. If the field trial does not prove to be interference, the rules can be passed. If there is still interference, the spec is changed until interference does not occur again. the second trial will be held in the third week of October until the third week of November 2018.

The meeting was a good news for all local IoT players as this is one step closer in finally legalizing regulation for a safer, more controlled environment for IoT in Indonesia, so that it can be used and commercialized under the protection of the law. As one of the leading players in the IoT industry, we’d like to extend our utmost gratitude for the government of Indonesia for the continuous support in the local IoT industry.

Andri Yadi of DycodeX presents SMARTernak at Google Demo Day Asia.

DycodeX, mewakili KIBAR, bangga mewakili Indonesia sebagai satu-satunya startup tanah air yang maju ke ajang Google Demo Day Asia di Shanghai pada 20 September 2018 lalu. Andri Yadi, CEO DycodeX, berbagi pengalaman menegangkan namun tak ternilainya saat maju untuk pertama kalinya ke panggung pitching internasional sebesar Google Demo Day Asia.

“Google Demo Day Asia benar-benar pengalaman luar biasa karena ini adalah panggung terbesar yang pernah saya hadiri,” curhat Andri Yadi. “Menegangkan pasti, karena ada 1000 pasang mata yang menonton siapapun di panggung, tapi sangat menantang. Kesan yang terbaik yang saya dapatkan adalah Google yang benar-benar mendukung kita para finalis dan menghubungkan kita dengan orang-orang yang berpengalaman dari industri IoT untuk kita terus belajar.”

Andri Yadi sempat berbagi tentang kekagumannya dengan startup yang terpilih menjadi juara favorit di Google Demo Day Asia. “Saya kagum dengan Origami Labs dari Hong Kong. Mereka buat cincin cerdas bernama ORII yang bisa menerima perintah suara buat menelepon atau kirim SMS cuma dengan menepuk telinga yang kini sudah siap dipasarkan.”

Bisa tampil di Google Demo Day Asia menjadi pengalaman berkesan, namun momen paling membekas adalah ketika Andri Yadi bertemu dengan Konsulat Jenderal Republik Indonesia di Hong Kong. “Mereka kaget ketika tahu bahwa ada startup IoT dari Indonesia yang lolos seleksi finalis Google Demo Day,” ujar Andri Yadi. “Mereka berharap lebih banyak lagi startup dari Indonesia yang bisa mengikuti kompetisi tingkat Asia, terutama di China. Kita dititipkan pesan untuk terut membina calon kontingen dari Indonesia yang mau berkompetisi di ranah Asia.”
