Tokopedia started out as an e-commerce company founded in Indonesia in 2009. It is the country’s largest local online shopping platform. The conglomerate has branched out in several other fields and has started providing financial services, logistics systems, platforms for small and local businesses and even Sharia friendly products for Indonesian Muslim consumers. Tokopedia also entered the cultural field by introducing a monthly shopping festival from 2020 and roped in K-pop groups like BTS and Blackpink. And now, they have launched ‘WIB Indonesia K-pop Awards 2021’.
