Westbike Messenger is a zero-emission bicycle courier that employs marginalised youth in Indonesia’s inner cities
Traffic jams and air pollution by fossil-fuel vehicles are a serious problem in Jakarta and other overcrowded Indonesian cities. While getting from A to B by car causes huge delays, an estimated seventy percent of carbon emission comes from transportation. Westbike Messenger tackles these two problems at once with their bicycle delivery service. The enterprise also serves a social purpose, by providing jobs for vulnerable groups.
We’re looking forward to gaining knowledge and seeing the inner workings of a world-renowned company such as IKEA. Having access to great mentors and advisers from Instellar and IKEA will greatly benefit our company.
Omar Stamboel, CEO of Westbike Messenger.
