Succeeding in the Post-pandemic era by Daring to Start a Business
Tangerang – In front of 500 new students’ representatives, young entrepreneur, Daniel Hermansyah, shouted the slogan widely circulated in advertisements, “Just Start First.” New students from Multimedia Nusantara University (UMN) took their inaugural lecture offline after more than two years of online classes on Friday (19/8/2022).
The CO-Founder & CEO of Kopi Chuseyo, Daniel Hermansyah, was the guest at the inaugural lecture and the 2022 senate open session with the theme ‚ÄúQuickly Seizing Post-pandemic Opportunities‚ÄĚ to inspire new batches of students in the post-pandemic recovery period. He is an alumnus of the UMN Accounting Study Program batch 2010.
Daniel Hermansyah started his career as the Managing Director of Dreambox Branding Consultant for seven years before finally establishing Kopi Chuseyo in 2019. Daniel has been interested in coffee for many years and has been a K-Pop fan since 2006. The combination of the two led him on a mission to make Kopi Chuseyo a top-of-mind coffee brand for K-POP fans.
‚ÄúWho is a fan of K-Pop or K-Drama?‚ÄĚ Daniel asked the entire Senate audience. He said that the Korean wave hit the world, and in Indonesia, there were more of them during the pandemic. According to him, this is a great potential. As he was presenting, the slides showed celebrities who had come and enjoyed Chuseyo Coffee, like Helmy Yahya, Teten Masduki, Kak Seto, Erick Thohir, and Raffi Ahmad.
This year, UMN accepted more than 3,000 students, including students from the UTS Global Ambassador Scholarships program from Yemen, Belarus, Sierra Leone, Pakistan, and Iran. In addition, students from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology scholarship program through the Higher Education Affirmation Scholarship scheme or better known as the ADik Papua, West Papua, TKI, and Smart Indonesia Program Scholarships are realized through the KIP scholarship program.
Today’s inaugural lecture and open senate session 2022 were held in a hybrid manner, broadcasted from three places: Function Hall, Lecture Hall, Lecture Theatre, and via Zoom. The event was attended by 13 undergraduate study programs, two master-level study programs, and one diploma level. Also present were the guests of honor of the board of directors and the chairman of the Multimedia Nusantara Foundation.
UMN Chancellor Dr. Ninok Leksono, M.A., in his speech, alluded to the implementation of the New Student Orientation, which coincided with the celebration of the 77th independence of the Republic of Indonesia. That at this time, we got three lessons on independence. That is to live in an independent nature, enjoy independence, and fill the independence by contributing. Contributing means producing the best works.
