For the first time, the School of Business and Management – Institut Teknologi Bandung (SBM ITB) organizes the SBM-ITB Start of Startup (SBM-ITB SoS): Exhibition of Students’ Business Initiatives 2019. This time, SBM-ITB SoS is held in two locations: 29 April – 3 May, 2019 at Bank Central Asia Kantor Cabang Utama Dago, and 3 – 4 May, 2019 at Aula Timur, Institut Teknologi Bandung. The exhibitor are first year students of SBM-ITB who are currently studying the course MB1203: Leadership and Management Practice.
Substantially speaking, the theme of the exhibition is focusing on the exhibition of Students’ Business Initiatives as a part of course MB1203: Leadership and Management Practice for Bachelor students.
In overall, there are around 160 business initiatives exhibited in the events. 9 of them are being exhibited at Bank Central Asia Kantor Cabang Utama Dago, while the rest are being exhibited at Aula Timur, Institut Teknologi Bandung. The exhibition is divided into four major categories: apps, food, fashion, and miscellaneous. Attendances come from SBM-ITB, ITB, and guests from outside of ITB.
Overall, the exhibition is performed well, with students learning about how to initiative business from scratch. It is expected that the event will give confidence boost and learning curve for the students to perform better, particularly in the forthcoming years.
This first SBM-ITB SOS 2019 will be a vital milestone for the next year exhibition of students’ business initiatives, we hope this event will be annually organized in order to support the SBM’s mission of educating students to be innovative leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset.
