It's bordered by the Strait of Malacca and is one of the most important shipping areas in the world being the gateway to the western area of Indonesia that is accessible by the Port of Belawan and the Kuala Namu International Airport. Its economy is linked to that of Penang and Kuala Lumpur plus Singapore by service, trade and natural resource exchanges. It was the first city in Indonesia to have an airport connected with a train service. It's one of six cities in Asia that has preserved its numerous colonial architectural areas and there are numerous shophouses snuggled into the city's corners. With its rapid growth, Medan is now home to coworking venues for its inventive locals and the many tourists that need to get some work done whilst trotting around the globe.
This is where many foreigners have set up business due to its dynamic vibe, its location and proximity to Singapore with international companies such as DBS Bank and Marriott to name a few calling it home. This city is a hodge podge of nationalities from Malay to the Dutch and Chinese making it a rainbow of people, culture and cuisine.

It has a growing tech-savvy middle class that is young and in touch with the latest trends, think along the lines of 88 million people online with 79 million of them playing on social media. Its tech startup scene is just learning how to "walk" and there have already been some startups that have become major successes, despite the fact that they have had to overcome infrastructure challenges and lack of a real ecosystem. The inventive individuals of Indonesia aren't just hitting the safe niche markets but are going for a range of different sectors and getting busy in coworking venues where they can play with likeminded souls.
