Imagine yourself being in a concert, your adrenaline is pumping and your energy is through the roof; you feel like you can do anything, achieve anything that your heart desires.
Well, meet the guys at Incitement, Led by Zikry Kholil and Daniel de Gruijter, Incitement wants to recreate a concert experience when you attend their events. But they also want to take this to a whole other level, they want to channel your energy and passion into a meaningful social project that you can be proud of.
Sadly, Daniel was overseas at the time of the interview, and i only get to interview one of the amazing duo, Zikry. The interview has made me a superfan of Incitement and their cause. Do you know that in a short span of three years Incitement has expanded to over 45 countries? And to think that Zikry actually called himself an ‘accidental entrepreneur’. They never planned for Incitement to be a money-making company in the first place! They just wanted to create a movement in which youths could contribute significantly to society. This goes to show that business does not always have to be cutthroat, it can also have a greater social purpose. However like a skillful entrepreneur, Zikry leveraged on his social network and was able to attract top multi-national companies to contribute and make a difference in their society by connecting them with the appropriate non-government organizations.
I could feel a positive aura radiating from Zikry as he waxed lyrical about the work he is doing with Incitement. It was clear to me why Incitement could expand in such a short period of time! Zikry only surrounded himself with positive people who shared his vision. Success can definitely only come when you cut ties with the Debbie Downer in your group. So, empower yourself with the right people and see not only your spirit but business soar!
Update: Zikry Kholil listed as Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia (say whatttt)

multitude of local and global awards for his work with Incitement
