BiSA BUBAR: Business Startup Set Up 101
To raise and keep the engagement of startup enthusiasts within BINUS University students and fresh graduates, BiSA created startup community through social media and mobile messenger channel. It was started back in May 2016, and after one month running, the program was launched along with the break fasting in the Ramadhan month at the end of June.
This event has been held on June 23rd at The Cortado near BINUS campus in Syahdan. It was raining outside in the evening, but it can be seen the spirit and enthusiasm not only in the attendances but also the startup founders invited. There were 35 attendances at the event that were not only Binusian students and alumni but also peeps from UI and other universities.
Started by Bobie Hartanto, SCC of Marketing and Communication of BINUS University, this event was started with break fasting and also networking time. It was a very heart warming situation seeing all the attendees sharing ideas like they never did before.
Moving on, the session was opened by speech from Christine Siagian, Coordinator of Binus Startup Accelerator, sharing about the newest overview of startup scene in Indonesia and gave a lot of new insights about why we should running startup today.
