About Skystar

Skystar Ventures is a tech incubator and coworking space founded by Universitas Multimedia Nusantara (UMN) and Kompas Gramedia Group (KGG). We target early stage startups in the Internet, mobile, social, education, and eCommerce sectors. Startups that disrupt traditional models excite us. More importantly, we seek out founders who are dedicated to making a positive impact in Indonesia.


We are not your average tech incubator


Our comprehensive incubation program enables us to provide direct and multidisciplinary support to founders, enabling accelerated growth. Our diverse network of mentors help founders obtain the guidance required to build thriving companies. We also provide coworking space for our founders to utilize for work, meetings, and conference space.


Backed by one of the largest media groups, Kompas Gramedia, we are able to provide founders access to their unrivaled network of media and business units in multiple industries to help grow and scale your business. We are committed to providing the resources required to help startups create sustainable businesses in Indonesia.



Skystar Ventures helps founders tap into KGG’s diverse network of distribution channels to strategically market their product or service and quickly build a customer base. The company’s business units involved in media, property, education, event management, and hospitality, just to name a few, enable founders to directly access their target markets.


We see the lack of mentorship available for technopreneurs in Indonesia. Skystar Ventures' focus is to develop these startups by providing a supportive working environment that allows access to established, key industry professionals. Experts in media and tech are always sharing their knowledge at our incubator. We take a pragmatic approach and connect founders to these experts, based on their needs.

Access to Capital

We partner with strategic, long-term investors to help our founders fulfill their capital needs. This enables us to support companies at any point of their business life cycle, in any given market environment.

Access to Fresh Talent

Skystar Ventures is not only affiliated with a leading New Media and Technology university, UMN, but also located on its campus! This provides founders the opportunity to access and collaborate with the brightest future leaders of the New Media and Technology industries.

Management Team

Skystar is managed by a dedicated team of doers who are passionate about technology, entrepreneurship, and startups. Our ultimate goal is to help founders create sustainable businesses, and this mission is ingrained in all that we do for the organization.
