The opening of Entrepreneursip Camp i3 presented Radyum Ikono, CEO of Schoters, as a speaker. Schoters is one of the startups engaged in the ed-tech field, especially related to preparation for further studies, especially for students who will continue their education abroad with scholarships.

In his presentation, Radyum conveyed how to start a startup, tips and tricks for managing a business, as well as motivation to continue running a business. “There are three things that an entrepreneur needs to master when he builds a start-up. The first is the founders, who the founders are, what is the agreement between the founders, and the vision they have. Second is the idea. What ideas do you want to realize, for example, you want to create a startup with a digital market. The third is market size, knowing who our target market is, whether teenagers or adults, whether local or international, and so on”.

After the inaugural meeting, the 10 Entrepreneurship Camp i3 business groups will undergo workshops and mentorship for the next five weeks with a series of Fantastic Ideas (Idea Networking), Innovation Camp (Startup Incubation), and Expert Validation (Expert Validation). With this workshop and mentorship, it is hoped that it can produce successful startups from the realization of business ideas from the FTUI and UI academic community.
