Students Showcase Their Entrepreneurship Skills in Batam

Jan 19, 2019 – Prestasi Juniors promotion of entrepreneurship education in Batam schools culminated in the showcasing of six companies products at Mega Mall Batam Centre on Saturday 19th January. The event provided opportunity for each student run enterprise to sell their products to customers in the busy mall – many of whom had travelled from Singapore for the weekend. The support from Caterpillar Foundation has enabled these 16 year olds to learn about the world of business through a practical application of the JA Worldwide Company program. Consequently, some 120 young Indonesians have now strengthened their business knowledge and grown their self-confidence – they are well prepared to apply this and become business people in the future.

The Head of Education for the Province of Riau Islands, Mr. Muhammad Dali, attended the event and was most pleased to see high school students learn about entrepreneurship. The improvement from all schools was phenomenal, including that of SMK Muhammadiyah, as self-confidence has grown. The student company from SMK Kartini produced table lamps made from Gong-Gong (sea shells) and this was seen as the most innovative endeavour. These students will travel to Jakarta to participate in an event together with other schools from around Indonesia.
