The website facilitates quick and secure international job placements by matching potential workers with qualified businesses. The organisation works by interviewing, screening, and offering Indonesian workers options for upskilling in order to create a network of skilled labourers who are prepared to work anywhere in the world.

Since being funded by Antler at inception, it has developed a network of 12,000 qualified workers.

“With Indonesia’s vast and growing population, we plan to dramatically scale our operations, aiming to assist ten times more migrant workers annually,” said Radityo Susilo, CEO of Gapai. “Our business development priority this year is to expand Gapai’s market reach to 15 countries across Europe including Hungary, Romania, Germany, and the UK, as well as nations in the Asia-Pacific region like Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, and the Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, and Qatar,” he added.
