Having such a good prospect, as a candidate student you should really consider this choice if you are strong in technical aspect.
The advent of many IT startups in Asia e.g. Alibaba and Grab and specifically in Indonesia e.g. Go-jek, Tokopedia and Traveloka in the last 10 years has a significant influence on young generation in establishing Startup.
Almost every university offers Entrepreneurship program and establishes business incubator. Those efforts meant to nurture students to become successful entrepreneur. However, entrepreneurship is not only about program or subjects taught. Entrepreneurship needs a good soil to grow. Besides the subjects needed to prepare the students with knowledge and technique, they need to exercise in real environment.
In BIT, many student projects that our students work on are solutions-based. It means the products of those projects would solve problems faced by the society. These types of project allow our students to learn one of the very important aspects of IT startup, that is solution to the society. If a project is potentially to be carried on, the students may establish a startup with the product they have developed during the study. We will accompany them and connect them with potential investor or find grant for them.
We have mentored some of our alumni to become entrepreneur. Some of them through our mentoring have obtained grant from the department of research and higher education. Those grants have helped them to grow. We haven’t achieved yet the big success like those startups mentioned at the beginning, however, each alumni startup is able to provide up to 20 jobs and they grow.

We will be happy to work with you together for your bright future.
