The selection committee then screened applications and selected 60 teams, 50 of whom were invited for an online interview and presentation session on 18 May 2022. Representatives from Hyundai Motor Group, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Indonesia, MYSC, Instellar, Crevisse, and the Ministry of Creative Economy were the judges or main curators for the online interviews and presentation sessions.

On the same day, 10 other teams were also invited for offline interviews and presentation sessions, which were held in conjunction with the "Road to G20: Investment Forum" at Sebelas Maret University (UNS) Solo, as a collaboration between Instellar, HSC Indonesia 2022 implementation partner, and UNS Innovation Hub and the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM).

Several important points were underlined by the selection committee this year, including financial maturity, mission, and social impact, business model, and social enterprise innovation.

This year's program also encourages businesses that are founded or led by women, and that focus on women as the target beneficiaries, to join this program. Seven of the fifteen selected social enterprises were founded and led by women.

This program also welcomes social enterprises that target persons with disabilities as beneficiaries. Each selected team will receive a grant of up to USD 6,500 to develop their business during the program.
