About Demo Day Rise Inc. Stars 6 & 7

Instellar believes the keys to create a sustainable social enterprise are 1) The right people and 2) An excellent sense of social and business. Therefore, Instellar is trying to support potential early stage of Indonesian social enterprises to succeed through Instellar incubation program, namely RISE Inc. (Rich and Impactful Social Enterprise Incubation). Currently, Instellar has completed 6 months program of RISE Inc. Stars 6 in late 2018 and 7 just this July for 33 social enterprises. Instellar intensively assisted them to set prospective business plans and advance their business platform. Now, Instellar provides a forum for those TOP 11 social enterprises from cohort 6 and 7, to introduce their businesses. The audiences are welcome to engage with them and experience their journey as a source of learning about the current condition of social enterprises in Indonesia.


ARISE (Awaken & Rediscover Indonesian Social Enterprises) is Instellar’s annual event where we introduce our social enterprises who already graduated from the Rise Inc. program. At ARISE, the social enterprises not only focusing on pitching to the investors or funders but also emphasizing on introducing their organizations along with the services and products to the public to increase awareness. Featuring discussion panels by stakeholders such as private sector, government, intermediaries, social enterprises, associations and other relevant stakeholders in the social enterprise sector in Indonesia and in the South East Asia region.

First ARISE was held in Jakarta on May 18, 2017 with more than 250 participants not only from Jakarta, but also from other cities of Indonesia, and several international participants as well. Around 65% of the participants are social enterprises from all over Indonesia, 20% from the non-profits sector, 7,5% from educational institution, 6,3% corporate and private sector, and 1,2% from other sectors.

In the next year, ARISE was held in Jakarta on April 26, 2018 with more than 300 participants both from Indonesia and International attendees. Around 60% of the participants are social enterprises from all over Indonesia, 21% from the non-profits sector, 9% from educational institution, 8,2% corporate and private sector, and 1,8% from other sectors.
