Ipteks for Entrepreneurship Creates New Students-Entrepreneurs

Suranto Eko Setiawan Totok Budi Santosa


The Science and Technology (IPTEKS) for the improvement of new entrepreneurial skills aims to build students and give them much-needed entrepreneurial skills. Science and Technology helps improve students in terms of training, empowerment, hard and soft skills. Any student that completes this program is capable of becoming a job creator and not a job seeker. The program will run for eight months, and 20 tenants will be selected from 75 participants. The first selection will be based on the talents of the participants, their portfolio and their business training activities in and out of the class. Direct training and Project Based Learning (PBL) methods will be used for this activity. The model of mentoring and empowerment will include: doing, empowerment, facilitation, and evaluation. The Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) approach is conducted to explore talentbased potentials. Therefore, we shall obtain the candidates for the tenant candidates by studying their business profiles, conducting interviews, and examining fingerprints. This activity will enable students to become tenants. This includes students PKMK, students who are starting a new business and alumni who have or do not have a business. This implementation shall be executed by training, empowerment, and mentoring for a 3month period. Furthermore, there will be another three months of monitoring on the field, provision of ecommerce marketing materials, and the introduction of business development. The exercise will be conducted in conjunction with the social preneurship institutions at the Muhammadiyah University of Surakarta. There will also be a collaboration with relevant business institutions that are proven to be competent in their fields. These business institutions will include: (a) Vocational Schools with the necessary technology-based equipment, training and training facilities, (b) LazisMu, (c) IIBF (Indonesian Islamic Business Forum of Solo) and, (d) HIPMI (Association of Young Entrepreneurs of Sragen). These institutions will provide entrepreneurial materials for the tenants. 20 early tenants will receive training and mentorship. The result shows that 50% of the tenants are capable of running a business independently using their talent and they can cultivate a new entrepreneurial mentality which they never had before
