Aug 7, 2021 – Prestasi Junior Indonesia is pleased to partner with the PT Combiphar corporation to promote entrepreneurship within five vocational schools which focus on pharmacy in Jakarta, Bogor, and Depok during 2021. Notwithstanding the limitations placed upon their business operations during the time of Covid-19, all student companies have been able to establish and operate their businesses with success. Their enterprises have developed a business idea, produced a product, marketed this product, and sold each product to satisfied consumers. Over just three months of business operation the student run businesses have been able to, cumulatively, secure revenue of IDR25,600,000. This undertaking focuses on experiential learning and provides students with real-world engagement in business operation supported by Combiphar business volunteers. The five schools involved in this entrepreneurship initiative are:
1. SMK Farmasi Harapan Massa
2. SMK Farmasi Bhumi Husada
3. SMK Farmasi IKIFA
4. SMK Farmasi Bogor
5. SMK Farmasi Tunas Bangsa
