In his opinion, Indonesia possesses several good traits for Unicorns to develop such as the steady growth of e-commerce, the huge population of internet users and so on. Therefore, Indonesia should make plans and take advantage of these gifts and develop more Unicorns.
Next, Mr. Mike Irvan talked about the new internet, which might replace the internet that we are using recently in the near future. In his perspective, the current internet system is under the risk of data overloading and it might collapse in the near future.
