Two IPB University Student Teams Win Winners in the Business Idea Competition


Two teams of IPB University students won the Business-IT Case IT TODAY 2021 competition. This competition was organized by the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA) IPB University.

The IPB University student team that won the championship was the Outsco Team and LokaEkspor. The Outsco Team consists of Muhammad Farhan Dirhami (student of the Department of Computer Science) and two Business School students, Satrio Wicaksono and Rio Kevin Marcello Alwi. Outsco Team succeeded in bringing in 1st Place with its business idea to create a fish auction-based marketplace in Indonesia.

Rio Kevin, a member of the Outsco team, said that the marketplace initiated by his team seeks to integrate fish auction places in Indonesia. He hopes that his business idea can expand the reach of the fish market.

"We hope that this business idea can solve the difficulty of accessing information between fishermen and consumers, as well as provide exclusivity for consumers in creating an ideal business process to realize the welfare of the fishing industry in Indonesia," said Rio.

Meanwhile, the LokaExport Team consisted of Muhammad Arham Amarulhaq and Moch Ichwan Mutaqqin from the Business School and Ilham Bagja Pamungkas from the Mathematics Department. The IPB University student won 2nd Place in the same event.

Muhammad Arham explained that LokaEkspor Team is an export company under the auspices of PT Lokaekspor Tani Indonesia, founded in 2021. This company has the concept of an integrated value system and value chain in the export sector. Thus, Indonesian products can compete competitively.

"Our motto is Empowering Indonesia Through Export Development following the export sector development target launched by the government," said Arham, as chairman of the LokaEkspor Team.

Arham hopes that his business can run smoothly. The reason is, when the competition took Place, his team was carrying out an export project with the Indonesian Farmers Harmony Association (HKTI) and factories in Indonesia. (NIRS) (IAAS/ERN)
