The Funding was founded by Wayne Thompson, a serial entrepreneur from New York who came back to Bali to see the devastation of the pandemic and decided to help.
Businesses had been forced to close down, hotels were empty and people were left without jobs with the challenge to reinvent themselves.
He gathered a small group of professionals devoted to the cause and started The Funding, a platform that provides business education & tools to empower entrepreneurs & business owners in Indonesia, leading up to a reality TV show about entrepreneurship. The team quickly discovered the endless amount of skilled artisans in Indonesia making beautiful products but lacking the resources to sell at scale and outside Indonesia. With the aim to link local vendors with international buyers, The Funding expanded their business by creating Buyamia, a new We-Commerce platform with the purpose to give local vendors a chance to sell internationally.
The Funding Show will be broadcasted on TV, but behind the scenes we will see many more opportunities for Seed and Angel investments.
