July 6, 2023
transcosmos inc. (Representative Director, Co-presidents: Masaaki Muta, Takeshi Kamiya) hereby announces that PT. transcosmos Commerce (Headquarters: Jakarta, Indonesia; President Director & CEO: Naoto Osada; transcosmos Commerce), its Indonesian subsidiary specializing in e-commerce business, has given lectures for students at the University of Indonesia (Location: Depok, Indonesia; President: Dr. Ari Kuncoro), the oldest state-run university in Indonesia. Naoto Osada, CEO at transcosmos Commerce delivered a series of three lectures on managing a startup and shared success stories for free of charge.
transcosmos Commerce, an e-commerce enabler for the Indonesian market, launched its business in November, 2018. As a sales partner who connects global brands with the Indonesian consumers, transcosmos Commerce helps clients manage their e-commerce services. transcosmos Commerce operates clients’ online flagship stores as well as runs marketing campaigns for the stores primarily on Indonesia’s 5 leading marketplaces – Shopee, Tokopedia, Bukalapak, Lazada, and BliBli. The company has a proven record in selling SONY audio and televisions, SEIKO watches, Roland musical instruments and more, helping clients expand their e-commerce sales.
Despite its economic growth, Indonesia still faces a challenge of youth employment. Against this backdrop, young generations are highly interested in, and prefer starting up their own business as a workstyle option. Recognizing such trends, the University of Indonesia, a state-run university which won the top spot in the List of 100 best universities in Indonesia (*1), invited transcosmos Commerce to give a lecture for its students as a successful startup in Indonesia’s e-commerce market, the largest in the entire ASEAN region. transcosmos Commerce has already delivered similar lectures at four other top-ranked universities including the Bandung Institute of Technology, and plans to continue this activity to serve society.
Dr. Fia Fridayanti Adam, Head of Administration and Applied Business Department, Vocational Education Program, Universitas Indonesia, commented as follows;
“The lecture provided by Mr. Naoto Osada fully stimulated our students' interest, considering the current job potential either to join some company or to start their business. E-commerce is one of the right choices to fill these opportunities. It was a very rare and special opportunity for us to experience Mr. Naoto Osada's workshop, as he shared his experience of how his competence and knowledge in the IT field worked out in the globalized eCommerce field. We were able to come to know more pragmatic reality about the digital economy, which is beyond the usual classes. We hope that the partnership between University of Indonesia Vocational and PT. transcosmos Commerce (TCCM) will not be limited to the public lecture, but be extended to other fields such as research, community services, or other forms. Thank you Mr. Naoto Osada and PT. transcosmos Commerce.”
