issue in many countries, Universities robustly introduce
entrepreneurship skill not only for the business school
students, but other majors as well. Universities have developed
a real-life project of starting-up a business project in a
determined period of time. Objective of this project is designed
to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. This paper concisely
highlights the issues faced by students doing entrepreneurship
project in these fields i.e., production, management, finance,
marketing, and technology. A quantitative survey method was
chosen to explore the issues appropriately in Indonesia to
increase the number of entrepreneurs which is currently 1.5%
from the total population of Indonesia. This research
conducted in Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi
(Jabodetabek – Indonesia) with a total of 280 respondents as
sample. This paper is expected to further give field-tested
recommendations for university authorities to give a better
guidance of entrepreneurial projects for the students.
