PITY THE Indonesian courier. Delivering a package on the archipelago can be a daunting task. The country’s 13,466 islands stretch across almost 3,000km and to reach a distant atoll might mean waiting weeks for a boat. Many people in remote areas lack a formal address; their roads are nameless and their houses often without number.

Everything starts somewhere. I think the old adage is the 2 people in a garage at the beginning working on a tech company.
In Asia there is a lack of garages for the most part but the rest of the issues and desires remain the same.
Some people are in a coffee shop, co-working space or their apartment or maybe their parent’s apartment.
Have computer will build startup seems to be the mantra.
Once that is settled you need some compute power, some tech/strategy help and if everything goes okay – you will need some capital.
Enter Project Alpha :: http://alpha.seedplus.com
Compute, help and capital all in on spot.
