JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The Jakarta Provincial Government, together with the Jakarta Experience Board, is holding a program for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSME). The program, named Jakpreneur Fest 2021, will be held until the end of June.
"MSMEs are the hope and foundation to move the wheels of the economy that have become stagnant due to the impact of the pandemic. Therefore, support from the government, regional-owned enterprises, and the private sector is needed to improve the capabilities of existing MSMEs in order to boost the regional and national economy," said acting Head of the Jakarta Industry, Trade, Cooperatives, and MSME Office Andri Yansyah in a press statement on Sunday (06/20/2021).
The Jakpreneur Fest 2021 series of events began last May for the Business Competition program, which took place from May 24 to June 17. MSME businesses are challenged to innovate and be creative with their business models.
The winner of the Business Competition will receive a cash prize of IDR90 million, which will be announced on Appreciation Night on 27 June.
Jakpreneur Fest 2021 also has Super Class and Personal Class training programs with mentors from various industries. These two classes can be accessed for free on the Jakarta Provincial Government's YouTube channel, www.jakpreneurfest, and Shopee Live on 20-22 June.
The Jakarta administration is also cooperating with Shopee for the 2021 Jakpreneur Fest, in the form of the Jakpreneur Market which will be held on the platform from June 21 to 30. The Jakpreneur market is filled with MSME products and local brands from Jakarta.
Meanwhile, Novita Dewi, President Director of the Jakarta Experience Board, said the Jakpreneur Fest 2021 series of events aimed to improve business capabilities, develop MSMEs, increase basic sales transactions, and encourage entrepreneurial skills.
Jakpreneur Fest 2021 is part of the celebration of Jakarta's 494th Anniversary, with the theme Jakarta Rising.
In addition to training and local product shopping festival, Jakpreneur Fest 2021 some time ago held an incidental exhibition in the Mbloc area and the Kendal Tunnel, as reported by Antara.
