Super is also the first consumer technology company in Indonesia backed by Y Combinator, which oversees the main feature, SuperAgen, which is agent-led commerce that enables community leaders to become retailers within the communities.
Super utilises technologies to empower community leaders to become self-made entrepreneurs by enabling them to sell various products to their communities, and build a logistics network with the lowest cost. Super facilitates communication for social-buying behavior so agents can sell various products through social networks like Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp.
Super is ready to build the number one social commerce network in Southeast Asia.
