CROWDE welcomes Ivan Gondoprastowo as Chief of Product (CPO) in August 2022. Ivan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the technology and financial services industry to help CROWDE further innovate and develop a better agriculture business ecosystem in Indonesia.
Let’s get to know Ivan Gondoprastowo better:
Over 8 Years Experience in the Field of Financial Services and Technology
Before beginning his career in CROWDE as the CPO, Ivan Gondoprastowo developed his career in JP Morgan for more than 8 years, where he was leading a global software development team. Before starting his career at JP Morgan, Ivan also had working experiences in a research organization, multinational IT consulting company, and technology start-ups in the US, India, Hong Kong and Indonesia.
Pursuing Education in Hong Kong
Ivan Gondoprastowo pursued his education in Hong Kong, where he obtained his Bachelor and Master degree. He studied at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology where he graduated with a Bachelor degree in Computer Science in 2014. He then obtained his Master’s degree in Data Analytics and Risk Management from The University of Hong Kong in 2019.
A keen learner and an avid traveler
Ivan believes in a multi-disciplinary approach when it comes to living and problem solving. His interest spans from technology, finance, psychology, to culture and music. He is also an avid traveler, having visited more than 50 countries in 10 years. “I enjoy learning about how people live in different places, how they eat, what they buy in the grocery stores, how they spend their time, as ultimately it offers a new perspective on how to live our life”. He is about to add agriculture and visits to various places in Indonesia into the mix.
Optimistic about Agriculture Industry and Indonesia
Recent development in the world including supply chain disruptions, Ukraine, and increasing energy prices has prompted his rather radical career shift. “When I came back for my most recent visit to Indonesia, I can really feel the rapid growth of the Indonesian economy and the improvements in living standards brought by digitization. The opportunity to revolutionize the agriculture industry in Indonesia at the time we need the most that CROWDE has to offer really excites me”.
We wish him an exciting journey ahead with CROWDE!
