Founded in 2017, Jakarta Derma Clinic has grown quickly. There are already four branches across Jakarta, at Pondok Indah, Plaza Indonesia, Kelapa Gading and Lippo Mall Kemang, all offering the latest medical aesthetic technology. The mission is to “fulfil the patient’s need to be confident in every age from head to toe,” says dr. Ronald Yulianto, who gained his medical degree from Tarumanagara University.
For dr. Yulianto, founder of Jakarta Derma Clinic, starting his own business at a young age was a huge step to take. “I shall never forget the day when I decided to leave my comfort zone, from working with a company to starting a business of my own. The early days weren’t easy for us.”
What kept him going was his parents’ advice to stand tall while facing the storm. “They taught me to be patient and consistent in building the business. There are always challenges and problems in our life, so as business owners we have to seek solutions and become problem solvers.”
Looking back on two successful years, what has Yulianto learned about himself so far? “I would say that managing people and making the right decisions, especially in a short time, are the most difficult challenges I face,” he replies. “I keep looking to add something that makes my clinics stands out from the others in our field, and I always want to be creating something that’s out of the box.”
