A total of 49 exhibition stands enlivened the agenda of the Millennial Stall in cooperation between the University Student Executive Board (BEM-U) of the University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) and the 55th Anniversary Committee of UMM on Thursday morning (12/20). A variety of food entrepreneurs until souvenirs adorn the parking lot of the Joint College Building (GKB) I.
Present at the opening ceremony, UMM Rector Dr. Fauzan, M. Pd said he was happy to see the entrepreneurial spirit of the exhibitors participated by students, alumni, and the public. According to Fauzan, there is a uniqueness when deciding to enter the world of entrepreneurship. "If you only wishing for profit, if you keep on thinking about that, it will be useless. That is business," he explained.
"I've been to Minnesota, United States. There, I found a used goods bazaar. After I saw that, in fact, all of them were students. Starting from the goods sold until the transactions, everything is from students and for students," he said.
So, he continued, it was not about the used goods, but a very good entrepreneurial initiation that began in college. For Fauzan, the initiation and innovation of students must continue to be encouraged. It also must always be collaborated with many parties.
Business ideas must continue to be developed. But don't forget to be executed as a form of practice. "In this world, Learning is always right. While you are still a student, spend your time trying. Tomorrow it's time to be a success," he encouraged.
As a student, Fauzan also encouraged students who are interested in entrepreneurship to study diligently related to market psychology. According to him, the market was very mysterious. In his opinion, it can’t be guessed. To master it, you need to get to know prospective buyers and certainly the strategies of your fellow entrepreneurs.
Fauzan stressed entrepreneurship initiated by millennials is not solely about the goods which are millennial. It can also offer innovations and how to transact. Also, prioritizing collaboration will bring many benefits. "Let's keep going, learn hard and be a useful human being," he said. (joh)
