Being an entrepreneur at a young age seems to be everyone's hope. Not infrequently, those who really have the ambition to become young entrepreneurs are diligent in attending entrepreneurship seminars or the like. Departing from this phenomenon, the Student Cooperative (KOPMA) State University of Malang (UM) recently held a 6th year National Seminar on Entrepreneurship entitled "Shifting to Be Better". Collaborating with Sukses Berkah Community (SBC) which is a community of Muslim entrepreneurs, the seminar was held on Thursday (30/1) at Graha Cakrawala UM Building. Booming, the participants who attended numbered thousands, both students and the general public.
The event took place from 08.00 to 21.00. Five great speakers were presented at the seminar. They are Ridwan Abadi (CEO Synergy Group, ed.), Ustaz Muhammad Jazir (Chairman of Takmir Masjid Jogokaryan, ed.), Nugie Al-Afghani (CEO of Kuping Production, ed.), Harri Firmansyah (CEO of High Performance Consulting, ed. ), and Syafri Bahar (Vice President of Data Science GoJek, ed.). The seminar was packaged into five sessions. In the morning session, about a thousand participants attended. Towards the evening, the Graha Crakrawala Building was increasingly crowded with thousands of participants. Dimas Nugroho, the chief executive said, the increase in participants was due to the presence of Syafri Bahar who brought an extraordinary creative entrepreneurial spirit.
When interviewed Dimas said that the seminar aims to bridge the younger generation who want to start a business or develop a business. "So we want to invite the millennial generation of small and medium enterprises (UMKM) to improve the quality of businesses in Indonesia. Our target is the younger generation and we need examples from MSME actors who already have experience, "he said. According to him, the many businesses that have just started or that have been developed by millennial generations who are very creative and assisted by experienced MSMEs will foster a spectacular entrepreneurial culture. "By cooperating with SBC, we hope not only to produce a generation of entrepreneurs who earn a lot of money, but also get blessings in their business," concluded Dimas.
