Setting the Stage to Meet International Standards

  • Almost ten years ago, two professionals hailing from Indonesia and the Czech Republic made a plan to realize their shared vision. Passionate in assisting foreign and domestic businesses with market-entry services, they founded Cekindo – a business consulting firm in Indonesia.

  • Throughout Cekindo's expansion beginning in Jakarta to Bali, Semarang, and further to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, clients receive assistance from our team of talented consultants during every step of their business expansion journey. This caught the attention of regional leaders in the industry, leading to Cekindo's acquisition by InCorp Global in 2018

  • While Cekindo was already succeeding in providing high-quality market-entry solutions, the acquisition by InCorp Global gave us a global perspective. Now integrated into a broader network, Cekindo is able to assist in cross-regional services with fellow InCorp Global group of companies.

    This allows us to provide clients with more complex solutions and raise the quality of our services to meet international standards.

  • In 2021, InCorp Global became a member of PrimeGlobal – an award-winning association of independent accounting and business advisory firms that spans over 100 countries.

    Through this partnership, we aspire to keep improving & expanding our market-entry services for our clients.
