Season 2

Episode 18

Achmad Zaky of Bukalapak

Interviewed by Hans Tung and Dimitri Taslim.

On this episode, we have Achmad Zaky, the founder and former CEO of Bukalapak, one of Indonesia’s largest eCommerce site and the newest unicorn in Indonesia. The name Bukalapak means “open a market stall” in Indonesian. It reflects the company’s vision of building an online marketplace for SMEs in Indonesia.

We covered his founder journey as a fresh graduate, empowering small business owners in Indonesia with technology and his view on the evolution of the tech scene in Indonesia for the past 10 years.

*The conversation was recorded last year when Zaky was still the CEO of Bukalapak. Since January 2020, he has left the CEO role and started his investment fund Init 6.
