Chaim Fetter – Co-Founder & Chairman of the Executive Board
Coming from a family where healthcare has been a predominant theme for decades, Chaim has been interested in development work for all his life. Branching away from the family tradition early in life, he became an entrepreneur at the age of 16 when he established his first ICT company in the Netherlands. Within a few years, he was the owner of several other ICT related businesses. Despite financial prosperity, he felt something was missing in his life, and a few journeys through Asia roused his interest in different cultures and people.
When he saw many street children on the streets of Indonesia, he was moved to do something to help them. Together with his childhood friend Bjørn he founded the Peduli Anak Foundation in 2005. Currently Chaim lives in Jakarta where he is building and managing Southeast Asia’s fastest growing e-classifieds platform, named Jualo

Having a thorough understanding of the Indonesian market and culture, Bjørn is part of Philos Corporation, an entrepreneurial vehicle that operates an Emerging Asia focussed consumer platform consisting of three key divisions: healthcare, nutraceuticals and mHealth. By addressing the primary needs of mass market consumers, the corporation aims to positively contribute to the lives of generations.
