To Molzahn, Indonesia is strategically placed and the country accounts for nearly 2% of global textiles and related products. The textile companies in Indonesia are very old school and they do not talk about online shops. Digital technology can help them to increase their value chain, enabling everyone to save and make more money.

Now they are still boot strapping the market. They are focusing on attracting more vendors in the textile and garment industry in Indonesia.
Molzahn also said that his company will serve a niche market and enhance the chances small and medium enterprises (SME) and family businesses of entering the sector.
The startup will generate revenue from every successful transaction and will take a percentage depending on the value of a transaction.
