“Simbah” is a Javanese language meaning a grandmother or grandfather in a family. However, this is not just merely any “Simbah” we have known. This time, Simbah is a startup engaged in agriculture, a creation of our young-talented creator named Mujiyanto. Graduate from Computer Science Amikom Yogyakarta, he had previously tried to plunge into the startup’s world but had lost due to lack of the teamwork’s consistency and commitment. Armed with his experiencesin building a startup and working as a manager in an office, Mujiyanto finally determined to brew a startup called “Simbah” as a manifestation of his motivation to help the family in farming and helping other farming families.
