Duniaku.net, the largest gaming, geek culture and gadget site in Indonesia, announced that they are getting funding from Discovery Nusantara Capital. Through this funding, Duniaku.net plans to expand in Indonesia and Southeast Asia, including publishing an esports site that focuses on articles and content for beginners.
Duniaku.net has been known to be active in the world of esports through their monthly event, Esport Prime Series. Through their websites, they hope that they can encourage esports fans to be more active and become supporters, in addition to encouraging those who are already supporters to become professional players in the future.
Duniaku.net has a long history in the Indonesian game industry. Starting from the awareness of the growing media in the network, in 2010 Ami Raditya, who was then leading a game magazine business, decided to create a website with the name Duniaku.net. Ami invited Robbi Baskoro to participate in developing the site and its content. In 2014, when the game magazine Ami worked for decided to close down, Ami invited the magazine’s content team to join her.
In early 2016, when the Duniaku.net business started to move up, Ami and Robbi invited Ricky Setiawan to build Duniaku.net operations in Jakarta as Chief Marketing Officer. Over time, Duniaku.net has grown from 4 people in early 2016 to 18 permanent employees at the end of the year while still maintaining its position as the largest gaming media in Indonesia. Ricky became CEO replacing Robbi in August 2016.
In April 2016, Duniaku.net formed a company under the name PT. Inspiration of the Media World or IDEA Network. “Starting April 2017, Duniaku.net and our other sites will move with the IDEA Network group flag,” concluded Ricky.
