In carrying out her vision for connecting compatible VCs and startups, Jenny Q. Ta will join forces with Silicon Valley's highly respected Indonesian pioneer, Shinta Witoyo Dhanuwardoyo, founder and CEO of Bubu.com, one of Indonesia's earliest Internet-based companies. Known to most people as Shinta Bubu, this highly experienced serial entrepreneur and part-time angel investor will add her own considerable expertise to Jenny's, forming a powerful alliance the goal of which is to transcend the barriers that separate entrepreneurs and startups from the VCs they need to succeed in their markets.
Shinta's personal mission in the investment arena is not only to support entrepreneurs through funding but also to help turn capable startup CEOs into confident leaders who have the clarity, creativity, stamina, and skill to build and sustain world-class companies. While she realizes that guiding and mentoring take time, energy, and effort, she also knows there is no substitute for these vital processes in the experience of a developing business leader. That's the primary reason she is willing to not only do her part personally but also to creatively connect entrepreneurs with other experienced business mentors.
Jenny and Shinta, though based half a world apart, share a common goal of fostering the entrepreneurial spirit that keeps young startups learning, growing, and innovating. As investors themselves, both successful business leaders are committed to guiding VCNetwork as the company invests in the startups within its fold, up to half-a-million dollars annually.
