Alumnus of the Forest Product Technology Study Program, Class of 50

CEO of Let It Wood

Rio Ardiansyah Murda is one of the alumni who succeeded in turning wood waste into a more valuable creative craft named Let It Wood. Together with two colleagues, Indra Lorenza and Rendy Yudha Kurniawan, Rio has been pioneering Let It Wood since 2017. This product is made from container wood waste which partly comes from community wood. According to them, buying community timber can improve the welfare of smallholder timber farmers.

Let It Wood has a variety of forms, ranging from tokens, frames, paintings on wood (potodinakai) to furniture. The price also varies from 10 thousand to 300 thousand depending on the level of difficulty in the process. They sell it through Instagram, Facebook and the marketplace. This product has been sold to various regions of Indonesia and to other countries such as Japan and the Netherlands.

Alumnus of the Animal Production Technology Study Program, Class of 48

The Owner of Travinesia

Ghulam Halim Furqoni developed an e-commerce market business named travinesia.com. Travinesia.com is a market place that accommodates travel agents to sell various tour packages. Not only tour packages to places that are already common and well known, Travinesia also provides new tour packages that are not yet known by the wider community. The purpose of making travinesia is to provide a place for travel agents in the form of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that have difficulty in marketing their tourism packages.

Tour packages available on travinesia.com are divided into eight categories, namely beach, mountain, city tour, adventure, culture, honeymoon, sailing and halal trips. There are not only tour packages to popular places, but also tour packages to new places that are not widely known by the public. Two types of trips are available, i.e., open trip and private trip. Open trips are provided for travelers who like to make friends so that in one destination the tour package can contain travelers from various regions. Private trips are more specialized for travelers who want to enjoy tours with family and friends.
