"I am optimistic that LSPR CACS will be a place to develop a leading entrepreneurial community that is able to compete globally while still contributing to the local community," LPSR Jakarta's Founder and Director Prita Kemal Gani stated at the launch event held in Jakarta on Wednesday.
Prita added that the center will hold various activities in order to realize its vision of becoming a learning support center that shapes, equips, and develops LSPR graduates to become creative and innovative entrepreneurs.
The center's activities include an exclusive training program held within one academic year, and family business mentorship held twice in an academic year.
Another program is aimed at building an alumni entrepreneurship network.
