#5 Meet Rendy Mahaputra, a Bangkit 2022 Graduate Who Led His Team to Get an IDR 140 Million Incubation Fund

We want to assure you that your cohorts in Bangkit are special. They might come from different cultural backgrounds, but they are united by the same spirit of success. One of the Bangkit Alums that adopt this spirit is Rendy Mahaputra and you may find a figure like this in your class. 🏆

Rendy Mahaputra is the leader of GluCare, one of the Top 15 Product-Based Capstone Projects in Bangkit 2022. His team made it in defeating the other 422 teams. 💪🏻

Glucare was born when Rendy saw that diabetes is Indonesia’s third cause of death. He then created this app that can early detect this disease through the eyes. His perseverance led him and his teammates from 3 (three) different universities to achieve IDR 140 Million incubation fund and expert mentorship from Google and DRTPM Dikti. 💸

“Do your best in the capstone project. If you and your team take it seriously, good results will eventually follow.”
