When first conceived by Steve Christian and Eka Wiharto (KapanLagi Founders) in 2003, the goal was to build an internet technology company that would change the content consumption landscape. As mobile phone users began reaching critical mass in Indonesia, KapanLagi.com seized the opportunity to provide entertainment for these individuals. From its humble beginning as a five-person team consisting of mostly engineers, KapanLagi.com has now grown to become one of the largest homegrown Internet companies in Indonesia with 500+ employees today. Along the way, new destinations in a variety of verticals were created including Bola.net (devoted to sports enthusiasts), Vemale.com (devoted to topics of interest to women), Otosia.com (devoted to automotive online media news), and Merdeka.com (our flagship news site).
In 2014, KapanLagi.com embarked on a new beginning through a merger with Fimela Network, founded by Ben Subiakto and Dian Mulyadi. Fimela Network is a lifestyle beauty network that operates Fimela.com (a glamorous online beauty and fashion destination), Sooperboy.com (devoted to all aspects of a man’s lifestyle), and Muvila.com (devoted to movie enthusiasts).
Combined, this network of popular online destinations is now known as KLN : KapanLagi Network and stand as a symbol for creativity, innovation, and perseverance. With offices currently in Jakarta, Malang and Jogja, and a readership of over 40 million per month, KLN is only getting started. We believe that great ideas need great people. As such, KLN will continue to groom young talent to give them early opportunities to create something significant and meaningful. This talented workforce along with the firm belief that “Your ideas can change people’s lives” will ensure that the company will continue to grow and make an impact both locally and globally.
Tomorrow must be higher than today... in all aspects of life.
