Jala Tech, an Indonesian shrimp industry data company, is the only Southeast Asian startup to have been selected for the 2021 Unreasonable Impact Asia Pacific programme.
Other selected startups hail from India, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, and Australia.
Launched in partnership with Unreasonable and Barclays, the programme aims to scale high-growth ventures that address global challenges.
Each venture was selected based on its potential to address key social and environmental issues, such as transforming the future of food production or innovating renewable energy.
The programme helps startups by connecting entrepreneurs to its international network of experienced specialists and mentors in various verticals.
“Unreasonable Impact was co-created with Barclays with a shared intention to help entrepreneurs take their businesses to the next level, faster. We firmly believe that the most valuable, influential, and lasting companies are those solving humanity’s most pressing challenges, and we’re so incredibly grateful and privileged to support these ventures and Fellows, and welcome them into our global community of life-long support,” Daniel Epstein, founder of Unreasonable Group, said.
Founded in 2015, Jala Tech is built by a team with a background in fish farming. The goal of the company is to get farmers to make decisions based on actual data.
To do that, its system provides water quality monitoring, planning, and reporting tools, complete with a decision support system so that farmers can initiate the right treatment at the right time, based on data that has been collected and analysed.
While Jala’s core market is currently shrimp, their device is applicable for all types of water monitoring systems and treatment plants, including smart city water management.
Jala Tech was also nominated to be a part of the e27 Luminaries Series, a content series highlighting the unsung heroes of the startup ecosystem.
