Jakarta. The annual Creativepreneur Corner Special Edition 2019 will kick off in Yogyakarta on Nov. 16 and Bali on Nov. 23.
Creativepreneur Corner is a talk show on entrepreneurship which aims to inspire millennials and people with entrepreneurial ideas to start a business. The event has been held annually since 2013.
"We are targeting Indonesian millennials eager to learn from others," founder and chief executive of Creativepreneur Putri Tanjung said in Jakarta on Thursday.
Earlier this year, Creativepreneur Corner was held in Medan, Malang and Makassar.
"We sold over 3,000 tickets, double our original capacity of 1,500 people. We saw a huge demand for another round, so we are holding two more events in two cities," Gaery Undarsa, event organizer and the managing director of Tiket.com, said.
The entrepreneurship event will be filled with 12 speakers with expertise in various creative fields, including Putri Tanjung herself, Gaery Undarsa, businessman Anindya Bakrie, former trade minister Gita Wirjawan, TV host Deddy Corbuzier, Indofood managing director Axton Salim, public figure-turned-businessman Arief Muhammad, content creator Ernest Prakasa, author Marchella FP and founder of media company Asumsi.co, Pangeran Siahaan.
Other than entrepreneurship, each session in the event will also discuss the speakers' success stories, social activities and personal life.
"The most interesting thing is to build an entrepreneurship mindset and creativity in young people, that will be my focus in the panel," Axton Salim said.
Deddy Corbuzier, who is also a motivational speaker, said he has been speaking in the event for five years.
"For that price [Rp 150,000 or $10], to listen to something that will be useful for our future, that's a small amount. Most Indonesian millennials are highly educated and want to be impactful, but don't know where to start. Well, the key to success is by listening to other people's experiences," Deddy said.
The topics of the discussions are said to be "a secret." If you are curious, see for yourself and get the tickets at Tiket.com.
