From now on, the students will work on creating a start-up plan and working in groups to prepare for the final presentation in January next year on issues that are expected in the "dawn of the enterprise" and the "expansion period."Not only students who are seriously thinking about starting a business, but also those who are interested and curious, will be able to get useful hints for practice, such as how to prepare for starting a business and how to fill the gap between ideals and reality. We hope that it will be of help in building your career.
