Established to support Indonesia's creative industries as a whole, Bekraf is also an important link between government and the burgeoning startup landscape

The startup ecosystem in Indonesia is closely supervised and supported by the government, perhaps in more obvious ways than in other economies. While there is no central agency or ministry that handles startup-related affairs, one particular agency stands out as a prolific actor in the industry: the Creative Economy Agency (Badan Ekonomi Kreatif), better known as Bekraf.

Bekraf was founded in early 2015, following a decree from President Joko ("Jokowi") Widodo.
