After holding the first workshop on November 13, 2019, OPPA held a second workshop with the theme "Business Knowledge". Located at Midtown Hotel Surabaya, the workshop was attended by all the participants of the first batch of accelerator programs: Robries, Wehasta, Loh Jinawi, CV Alief Karya, APSI, Peduli Sungai Surabaya River, Surabaya Central Waste Bank, and Anggrek Sectoral Waste Bank. This time the workshop presenter was a professional trainer in the business field, Wiwik Erly.
The workshop material was divided into five sessions: business concepts, service blueprint, business model canvas, grow models, and basic knowledge of the circular economic system. The participants were also given the task to rewrite their business and activities in the format that was provided by the speaker. Some participants are quite familiar with some of these concepts, while some other participants have never used them at all.
The main purpose of the workshop material this time is to increase general business knowledge and also review the business models of the participants. Some participants are still not used to write down their business concepts and also revenue or growth systems into a document. With the material and practice, the participants are expected to start running their business more professionally and conceptually.
In addition to the workshop material sessions, participants were also invited to practice to introduce themselves and get to know the other person with the speed networking method. The participants were divided into two groups. One group will standby and another group will take turns visiting each group member who is on standby. The participants will ask each other a number of basic questions within the time limit, if the bell has rang then the participant must immediately move to another participant.
