The lecturer, who is familiarly called Nurif, wholeheartedly appreciated the extraordinary achievements obtained by ITS students. From Nurif’s statement, ITS students have been preparing for the event for months. “We have made preparations for a long time even since last February,” explained the man born in Gresik.
Adding to his statement, Nurif said that the achievement of ITS students was a long process that did not happen by chance. He revealed that the development of this student startup has been crawling since the ITS Youth Technopreneurship Business Plan and Startup Competition program to the ITS Digital Marketing Camp (DMC) 2020. “In the end, our students get the highest award for entrepreneurship, namely at ASMI,” said Nurif gratefully.

From the initial 20 teams promoted by ITS, the first phase of a series of ASMI activities succeeded in passing seven teams. Furthermore, at this funding stage, ITS succeeded in carrying out six groups, as previously mentioned.
However, Nurif emphasized that the struggle of ITS students has not stopped and continues to follow the ASMI plan, which will continue until the end of this year. “If these six teams can qualify for the next stage, they can get tremendous investment from investors both at home and abroad. Therefore, we continue to accompany these younger brothers (ITS students, ed),” said the man who was born on June 14, 1969, with complete confidence.
In the future, Nurif hopes that students can prepare their businesses because managing a startup is not an easy thing and must be proven by real work that is beneficial to the community. “They are so ready to participate in this competition, so we hope they can survive and improve their abilities to prepare for the next stage,” concluded Nurif.
