Startups VS MNCs: How to manage cashflow and HR in times of a recession?


About this Event

2020 is a year of growing uncertainty. We saw increasing protectionism from some of the most significant economic powers such as the U.S. and China, political instability in the Middle East, Brexit—which dominated the agenda in Europe—and most recent news and stress about the coronaries. All of this has done little to decrease the interest of forward-leaning firms in expanding to fast-growth markets across Southeast Asia.

Beyond the common-sense measures related to the growing uncertainty among leaders eyeing Southeast Asia, we wanted to give you the opportunity to hear from our thought leaders supporting both Multinational Corporations (MNCs) and startups.

We have invited TMF Indonesia’s Managing Director Alvin Christian and Indogen Capital Managing Partner Chandra Firmanto to share their perspectives on cash flow and HR matters during an economic downturn. Both leaders have weathered a broad range of global challenges and while there is never a playbook, we are hoping the information will help you to a) take care of employees, and b) support your organization’s ability to adapt to change and cause the least disruption in the long run.
