Yusuf is the person whose name is on every Gojek driver's jacket, on the deepest ocean floor, and also on Mars. With this impressive track record, he is still humble and feels that there is still much that can be done.
Yusuf explained the importance of connecting business people with technical people. According to him, humans are analog creatures. 'We don't live on computers and live digitally, do we?' he added. 'Humans still need interaction with physical objects.'
