BOM and Think.Web, a digital impact agency based in Jakarta, Indonesia have secured £82,489 from The British Council to develop a new programme supporting female creative social entrepreneurs in Indonesia to develop their ideas with digital.
DICE (Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies), is an ambitious new fund to support partnerships between creative and social enterprises in the UK and five key emerging economies: Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, and South Africa.
BOM and Think.Web are one of 30 funded interventions, selected from 210 applications. The DICE programme aims to strengthen an estimated 230 creative and social enterprises, across the five countries, between 2019-20
The project, titled Perempuan Maju Digital (Women Advance in Digital), is a professional development programme for creative entrepreneur start-ups, engaging 500 women across five different regions in Indonesia.
From these 500, 100 women will be invited to complete a MOOC (massive, online, open course), built with bespoke content, created by BOM and Think.Web. 10 women will be taken forward to the third and final phase of the project, in which they will receive mentoring as they write their business plans, and work with the BOM Fellows to gain new creative digital skills, and prototype game-changing new ideas.
