ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #71 – Kakatu

Standard

Finally today! We got the opportunity to have CEO of Kakatu, Muhamad Nur Awaludin (Mumu) to share his recipe of “Building A Great Team to Build A Great Product!”

We had some precious time to discuss about many things before the presentation started πŸ™‚

Kakatu, is a digital protection for kids πŸ™‚

Kakatu has been interviewed by lots of media. It draws lots attentions because the product offers a great solution for parents for controlling and protecting their kids from the bad influence of digital media.

But the focus today was not about the product. It was about “Building a superteam, NOT a superman” πŸ™‚

Every startup has its own challenge, including product and market risk. But deep below, under the surface, the biggest problem is the team risk.

The milestone of Kakatu revealed: since January 2014 until now πŸ™‚

January 2014: Kakatu started with less vision πŸ™‚

IMG_2412

May 2014, Kakatu was among 2 startups chosen by Indigo Incubator

The CEO was a CMO back then

The problem started when one (or more) person in the team start to think that he’s more important than the others
IMG_2415

Things getting worse, on Dec 2014, one founder left Kakatu

so Kakatu wasΒ restructured on May 2015

That was when the CEO started to think that he need to share his vision and mission with the whole team.

June – Oct 2015 was like hell for Kakatu because the leader had been so busy doing pitching and competition without taking care of the team.

And when Kakau decided to do one last competition, it won! πŸ™‚
IMG_2421

On Dec 2015, Kakatu decided to focus on product. Which was a bad idea too.

IMG_2422

Because the right thing to do is to take care of the team!
IMG_2423

Jan 2016, Kakatu was invited to Launchpad Accelerator by Google that gave so much impact and insights to Kakatu.

IMG_2424

So starting March 2016, CEO said that CEO have to focus on the team than the product. With the “E” stands for empathy, encourage and (think about) everything. What a great philosophy! πŸ˜‰
IMG_2425

And it was time to redefine the vision and goals. He spent more than a week to do one on one sessions with the team. And it worked effectively!

IMG_2426

Now Kakatu shared goals between team members, that keep them stick together πŸ™‚
IMG_2427

April 2016, Kakatu joined some prestigious events and expand its knowledge

IMG_2428

And it became more aware about what to do and what’s not to do πŸ™‚
IMG_2429

It starts to develop good culture for the company

IMG_2430

And by having a great and solid team, hopefully Kakatu will go far! Not just fast πŸ™‚
IMG_2431

Here we are (yes, only us, like a band LOL)
