Representing Sampoerna University to National Selection of Grant Entrepreneurship KEMENPORA 2023

The Ministry of Youth and Sports (Kemenpora RI) officially announced the recipients of the 2023 Outstanding Young Entrepreneur Awards (WMP) and the Young Entrepreneur Movement Awards earlier this month. Approximately 175 students from 35 universities across Indonesia were chosen to receive an entrepreneurial funding grant for developing their businesses.

Five Sampoerna University students were among those selected to receive funding for their businesses. The appreciation and award ceremony for the 3rd Stage of the Young Entrepreneur Awards were carried out by the Assistant Deputy for Youth Development and held from October 25th to 27th at the Aston Kartika Grogol Hotel. The event was conducted in a hybrid manner, so that all Indonesian universities could participate.


“We are really proud that five of our students made it to the final stage and successfully secured funding to build their businesses,” stated Dr. Wahdi Salasi April Yudhi, M.Dev Admin, Ph.D., the Rector of Sampoerna University. Students completed several stages in this competition process. First, they participated in an Entrepreneurship Workshop at Sampoerna University designed to give them awareness on how to become entrepreneurs through the Youth Entrepreneurship Lecture.  This was followed by administrative stages, training on how to pitch a product or service, learning about the Canvas Business Model, and preparing product presentations.
