Strengthening young entrepreneurs of UNY through a design thinking workshop


"A quality life is when we have excellent time, health, and finances. And we can only achieve all three if we are entrepreneurs," said Herry Budijanto Dragono, a Founder of Magic Marketing, at the Design Thinking Workshops on August 28, 2023. This activity was attended by 395 students from 42 campuses from 18 provinces.

Prof. Herry Budijanto Dragono stated that the concrete step to becoming an entrepreneur is PRACTICE, which includes Problem-solving, Resilience, Achievement motivation, Control, Teamwork, Initiative, Confidence, and Ethics.

Prof. Dr. Siswantoyo, M.Kes. as Vice Rector for Academic, Student Affairs, and Alumni of UNY, stated that independent entrepreneurship is part of the Ministry of Research and Technology's Independent Campus program, which provides opportunities for students to learn and develop themselves into prospective entrepreneurs through activities outside the lecture class.
