About Joe Sulistyo:
My drive in progressive industry and entrepreneurship comes from my family’s multi generations vertically integrated herbal supplement company, based in Indonesia, called Sido Muncul (www.sidomuncul.com). The company was founded in 1951 by my great grandmother, Ibu Rakhmat Sulistyo (Go Djing Nio) and has become one of the most successful vertically integrated herbal medicine companies worldwide. It’s world renowned in the highest quality of herbal supplements and holds top industry’s ISO certifications in manufacturing, R&D/lab, distribution, and consumer packaging.
My passion in disruptive technology comes from ~20 years of journey across high-tech sectors such as the 5G framework, e-commerce, market-networks platform, SaaS, marketing automation, large scale enterprise software and platform, and complex systems integration. I have had the fortunate opportunity to be part of the management and technical leadership positions at a variety of educational and public IT sectors including Cisco, University of Texas systems, Brocade, Radisys Corporation, Open Networking Foundation, and working with various small businesses and tech startups as in Wispero, Mobilytic, Lean Vault, NaturHeals, and many others.
