Telkomsel dares to step on the gas by launching INDICO,” said Erick Thohir, Minister of State-Owned Enterprises of the Republic of Indonesia.
Erick Thohir added that as an aggregator and market access company for local creators, INDICO can build an ecosystem that is expected to have an impact on the growth of the national digital economy. Therefore, INDICO must become a major aggregator for Indonesia’s version of digital economic growth.

We hope that INDICO is able to present digital solutions that are beneficial to the people of Indonesia,” said Andi.
The choice of INDICO as the commercial name was motivated by the company’s ambition to create a digital ecosystem by promoting the spirit of collaboration that empowers everyone. This empowerment is expected to be able to open up more opportunities to accelerate progress in various aspects of life.

In addition, the use of red and white colors symbolizes Indonesia and the courage to explore, innovate, and move forward. In carrying out business operations, INDICO focuses on developing customer-oriented cross-sector solutions and services through technological innovation.
In the first wave development stage, INDICO will focus on developing three priority digital industry sectors, namely health (health-tech), education (edu-tech), and gaming which are considered to have great potential to encourage the national digital economy.
In addition to these three sectors, INDICO also opens opportunities to expand its vertical business portfolio to more other industrial sectors as the market develops and opens up opportunities for collaboration in an effort to develop the national digital economy.
The health-tech and edu-tech sectors are the two main sectors that have been developed by INDICO, along with the merger of the management of the Kuncie and Fita application businesses. INDICO has also recently carried out developments in the gaming sector through the establishment of Mamamojo.
