HartLogic Facts

Alliance

Other Information

HartLogic began in 2012 as technology, content, and event consultant to help entrepreneurs in taking opportunities and solving problems. In 2016, HartLogic made a transformation by providing broader services through insights, event, community, incubator, consulting, and ventures. In 2020, HartLogic merges incubator, consulting, and ventures into HartLogic Enterprise, start HartLogic Foundation in the context of philanthropy to provide fair opportunities, and form a centralized super app named Pranala.

HartLogic was born in 2012 out in Bernhart Farras Sukandar’s bedroom, combined with his observation of a powerful convergence among three fields: technology, communication, and art. Starting from his previous clothes manufacturing business called Java Indonesia Clothes (JIClothes, transformed into samemiro) who has a problem with innovation in branding for creating a website.

Before HartLogic

JIClothes already operated since 2010 and have approximately hundreds of clients. In 2011 JIClothes, creates a label tag in every product that has been manufactured. But in 2012 JIClothes needs new innovation, and the website is the answer because back then there are only one popular clothes manufacturing who have a website in Indonesia. Based on that needs Bernhart found a solution to create a website:

  1. Consult with a technology consulting company
  2. Consult with students who could create a website
  3. Do it yourself

He chose the third option, do it yourself. Because the first option is too expensive and the second option couldn’t guarantee the maintenance with a disability to create needed features.

In 2013 some clients are asking what is your technology consulting agency name? (At that time, Bernhart already has an unused domain called HartLogic). Bernhart answer the question with:

It’s called HartLogic Technology

That’s the first time HartLogic name being mentioned! HartLogic Technology with the first purpose to support web creation of JIClothes and helping the small-medium enterprise to have a cheap but premium quality website and technology consultation.

Later on, one of HartLogic client, request to do digital marketing and event management. So this time HartLogic change its name from HartLogic Technology into “HartLogic”. With three consulting services area: Technology, Marketing, and Media.

2012 – 2015

Between 2012 – 2015 while HartLogic being developed as a side business, Bernhart also building several businesses with his friends in the area of education, event, FnB (Food and Beverages), e-commerce, mobile applications and 20 more. He also works in multiple multinational companies in Indonesia and Germany.

Reborn

Three months before coming back to Indonesia, he challenged himself to research and re-think about the entrepreneurial problem in Indonesia. He doesn’t want to make HartLogic only gaining revenue from supporting established business and not making a big impact on solving the entrepreneurial problem in Indonesia.

Then came up with one question in his mind about “How can I help Indonesian Entrepreneurs to start his/her own business and collaborate with each other?.” Supported by these facts:

  1. Culture:
    • The first is parents support. Most of the parents in Indonesia want their children to become an employee than becoming an entrepreneur. This problem has been a phenomenon in Indonesia, especially for the young generation. The parents want their children to become an employee rather than to become a creator. This is the culture in Indonesia, they think their children should be a professor, doctor, or anything can be named as “profession” and they think that an entrepreneur is not a good profession.
    • Second, the jobs, because of the first point before, most people want to be an employee. So, the interest becomes an employee increase and it is not comparable to the available jobs. So that’s why we need entrepreneurs to create the jobs.
    • Third, patience, most of the people can’t be patient. They want their business is success faster as they can. As the entrepreneur, it can’t be done. They can focus on one business, the more experience the more knowledge that they will earn. Source: HartLogic Research.
  2. Ecosystem: The low amount of entrepreneurs in Indonesia according to Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) shows that Indonesia only has 1,65% as entrepreneurs from all the total 250 million people. Source: Kompas.
  3. Collaboration & Competition:
    • The job competition is high, according to Pelaksanaan Harian Deputi Bidang Pelatihan dan Pengembangan BKKBN, Ida Bagus Permana, Indonesia will get the bonus about demography. It is about employee ages which are (15-64) and it reaches 70%. Where is the 30% going? the 30% unproductive people (less 14 ages and above 65 ages) they will increase in 2020-2030.
    • Most young entrepreneurs don’t want to collaborate with each other as entrepreneurs because they think their business is the best and the other are the competitor.
  4. Knowledge & Foundation: Entrepreneur should choose the product that will they sell and some people get confused to choose what will they make or what will they do as an entrepreneur. Skills also affected the entrepreneur, most of the people don’t have any skills when they begin as an entrepreneur. But, if they want to learn more, they will get more skill in business. Afraid to be failed in business. Most of the people think should have much money and can be failed. They think an entrepreneur only can be done by the rich people. most of the people think that the business is expensive. If they want to collaborate with each other, they will earn advantages. They can reduce the cost of production. Source: HartLogic Research.
  5. Research: According to Boediono the Vice President of Indonesia 2009-2014, there are some problems to become an entrepreneur. There is law that affected entrepreneurs, macroeconomic condition in Indonesia is also affected because the entrepreneurs need a stable economy, the infrastructure in Indonesia also have big effect to entrepreneurs because the economic transaction must be effective on transportation, the regulation and the laws in Indonesia that are supporting for entrepreneurs or not, the service of financing for entrepreneurs, and last the skill of the employees. source: sindonews.com

From ” I ” transformed into ” We “. Bernhart immediately evaluates and merges all of his business that possible to be mixed because of the similar service into HartLogic and the other are merged into HartLogic Ventures:

HartLogic Ventures:

In 2015, after he came back from Germany, he stopped JIClothes and asked for help from several friends while he finishing his engineering bachelor degree thesis, he set a movement to make HartLogic reborn. HartLogic is focusing on managing current ventures while supporting its own platform by developing HartLogic Incubator and HartLogic Start.

From May 2015 to April 2016 HartLogic faced many challenges in the business ecosystem in Indonesia, there’s a little understanding about the business model for the founders and the team of business in Indonesia, especially in Bandung.

Transformation: Entrepreneurship Platform

In May 2016, HartLogic launch HartLogic Official WebsiteHartLogic Brand Website, and HartLogic Organization Website. After we start operational in Bandung from May until December 2016, 98% of HartLogic Team left, the organization almost went closed, but there are only one hartroopers left at HartLogic, and he is Bernhart Farras. He almost gives up with HartLogic but there’s one thing in his mind.

My parents didn’t agree with me when I create HartLogic as main focus of my life and it’s really hard to convince them, but until now even they are not agree with me. I keep building HartLogic anyway and I know that the HartLogic world was not ready and the numbers are not yet worked.

– This is what Bernhart say to convince his own brain with facts and dream to believe in HartLogic.

After that transformed HartLogic vision from supporting business to Supporting Entrepreneurs Around The World and we change the business model from a consulting agency and business incubator to entrepreneurship platform. Then HartLogic focuses on doing more research, testing and building MVP in permanent beta.

Early 2017 HartLogic came up with an idea to make a simpler process to make users understand our platform easier by categorizing our service based on what user needs. We introduce the categorization of our service and create a massive upgrade to all of our websites after almost three thousand web updates, user experience test and renovation (2.741 and 6.321 user experience test to be exact). We announced HartLogic For You: HartLogic For People, HartLogic For Partner and HartLogic For Business for the first time in July 2017.

To The Infinity and Beyond

This time, the world was ready and the numbers worked. HartLogic final website launched in August 2018 with three things that we do inside the entrepreneurship platform. First is HartLogic Solution that focuses to provide solutions in your entrepreneurship journey to the creation of HartLogic Ventures to expand our services and create a better life by executing dreams, and the HartLogic Foundation of philanthropy to help those who need, we want everyone to have a chance.

(Back then in 2012, HartLogic was only a consulting agency who help business to develop websites, create event, design, and solve marketing problems that operate in Bernhart Farras’s bedroom in his free time).

House

Fun Fact

Hartroopers who have a passion to build a party inside HartLogic Network and transform a social idea into a real impact.

  • Logical is a code name for a Hartooper who joins a Logical House in HartLogic
  • Hartrooper can only join one Logical House per 1 year
  • Every Logical Member will be given one mission at a time
  • Logical House organization structure is FLAT so there’s no boss, no supervisor
  • In every Logical House, there’s only one House Leader

From the beginning of why I build HartLogic, I am alone, tons of people judge me, there is so much challenge that I have been through, even at first my parents didn’t want me to do this because they want me to work in a big multinational corporation.

At that moment my brain agrees with my parents based on what they said about great monthly salary and sustainable life with a good career path. While my heart inside said nobody can guarantee it’s the safest area and I want to do more for people in my one only life.

Bernhart Farras, President of HartLogic

Name

HartLogic is an actual story of Bernhart Farras in his entrepreneurship journey. The name “HartLogic” comes from a combination of two words, “Hart” and “Logic”. Hart stands for how we feel and create a decision in our heart and Logic stands what we think of our brain that affects why we join a cause with logical thinking. Combining this two philosophy, HartLogic creates an entrepreneur who has a business logic with a social heart.

Business Logic
with Social Heart

Logo

HartLogic has two part of the HartLogic logo. Symbol and text. HartLogic symbolic logo comes from a combination of one circle, two half-circle cut rectangle, and a blank space. If you see the details on the logo you could spot this:

  • The circle is the core. It represents a symbol of entrepreneurship.
  • The two half-circle cut rectangle is the power. It represents a symbol of social and business that support the core.
  • The blank space is a space, It represents a symbol of unlimited innovation.
  • The combination representing a satellite in the space, It represents our vision supporting entrepreneurs around the world.

Color

There’s a various reason HartLogic use monochrome (black and white) color. Let’s discuss the philosophy first.

Black is visually heavy. Its message is therefore very strong. Black’s most common association is power, authority, and strength. It is for this reason that too much black can become overwhelming. White is considered safe and open. White is directly linked to that which is righteous, good and peaceful. Furthermore, white projects clarity, safe, cleanliness (doctors in white coats), purity (wedding dresses) and salvation. White is said to promote creative thought (a blank whiteboard) and is also synonymous with fresh beginnings. As a positive, clear and open color, white can direct communication in a powerful way.

In conclusion, here are the biggest reasons why we choose monochrome color:

  • Simple: Easy to navigate and modern
  • Dynamic: with white transparent logo, we could input any color into the logo
  • Universal: Everyone is able to see & every computer can recognize the same color
  • Cost efficient: While other use more than 2 colors. We can save budget with one color only.
  • Yin & Yang: Like our logo philosophy, we want to balance business and social

Values

  • Enabling collaboration is our core.
  • Help people is our power.
  • Create an unlimited impact is our space.
