SURABAYA- BORN Edy Sulistyo de­scribes him­self as “a se­rial tech en­tre­pre­neur who has founded and ex­ited sev­eral start-ups”, such as eEvent, OW.com and Ka­mus.net. He is the founder and CEO of Loket, which has been ac­quired by Go-Jek. Loket is an event tech­nol­ogy, tick­et­ing man­age­ment and data an­a­lytic com­pany, says Sulistyo, “that fo­cuses on cre­at­ing the best and seam­less ex­pe­ri­ence for event go­ers,” such as Katy Perry and One Di­rec­tion con­certs, Djakarta Ware­house Project and In­done­sian Bas­ket­ball League matches.

“I’m an avi­a­tion geek and loy­alty ex­pert with top-tier sta­tus in many ma­jor fre­quent flyer pro­grammes and ho­tel loy­alty pro­grammes,” says Sulistyo. In the past, he has founded a num­ber of com­pa­nies and web prod­ucts, in­clud­ing Ka­to­lik.com, FilesU­pload, DNOr­ga­nizer, iCon­vert, Park­ing-Hub, Cir­cleMail and OpenS­tub.

Es­tab­lished in 2013, Loket cov­ers more than 80 per­cent of Class-A live mu­sic event in In­done­sia. Says its 34-year-old founder, who grad­u­ated from Ohio State Univer­sity, ma­jor­ing in Com­puter En­gi­neer­ing: “We pro­vide one-stop smart event so­lu­tion to en­hance the suc­cess rate of events rang­ing from event dis­cov­ery, tick­et­ing plat­form, tick­et­ing dis­tri­bu­tion, ex­ten­sive ground han­dling ser­vices (ac­cess con­trol, cash­less pay­ment, vis­i­tors en­gage­ment), to highly ef­fec­tive cus­tomer data an­a­lyt­ics.”

Sulistyo says Loket is the first ever event man­age­ment plat­form in In­done­sia that gives its clients the flex­i­bil­ity to “sell your tick­ets in your own web­site, while re­tain­ing your brand through­out the tick­et­ing check­out process, so that you can lever­age your own brand even fur­ther.”
