Analisis Penerapan Bisnis Model Canvas pada Usaha Mikro Wirausaha Generasi Z

Purpose: This study aims to analyze the impact of the canvas model business concept on Generation Z micro-entrepreneurs. Research Methodology: The research methodology used in this study is a descriptive survey to describe and explain how BMC is applied to generation Z micro-entrepreneurs. The data for this study came from informants who are Generation Z online business entrepreneurs. The data collection techniques are questionnaire-based. Results: The research results indicate that the application of the business model canvas to micro-entrepreneurs in Generation Z is 83 percent, which indicates a favorable response from the respondents. Limitations: The study's limitations or weaknesses stem from the research process; the researcher recognizes that a study must contain a deficiency and a great deal of weakness. One of them is in terms of the number of respondents who are only ten people in Generation Z micro-enterprises, which is, of course, insufficient to describe the actual situation. Contribution: The purpose of this research is to develop a business strategy applicable to online micro-businesses by mapping the BMC's nine elements. It is anticipated that this research will increase revenue from product sales and broaden the market for Generation Z micro-entrepreneurs.

Faktor-faktor UMKM dalam Mengadopsi E-Market di Kabupaten Ogan Ilir

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to identify critical factors influencing SMEs in Ogan Ilir to adopt e-Marketing, in order to develop a concept of e-Marketing adoption in the Ogan Ilir Regency. Research Methodology: The study employs a survey method to collect data from MSME actors and the Department of Industry, Trade, Cooperatives, and MSMEs in Ogan Ilir Regency. The initial conceptual model developed within the TOE framework using e-Market was validated and tested using SEM on survey data. Results: The findings indicate a positive correlation between perceived direct benefits, top management support, external pressure, perceived trust, and identified e-Market adoption. However, it was determined that perceived indirect benefits and organizational readiness were insignificant in relation to e-Market adoption. Limitations: Because this research was conducted using TOE theory, additional development in areas such as behavior and infrastructure is required. Additionally, this research focuses exclusively on MSMEs in Ogan Ilir Regency and requires additional data to ensure that this concept is well received. Contribution: This study significantly contributes to the field of e-Market research, both theoretically and practically. This study adds to the existing body of knowledge in the field of e-Market and technology adoption in MSMEs by expanding the TOE framework to study e-Market adoption, developing a validated conceptual model to investigate the critical determinants of e-Market adoption in MSMEs in the Ogan Ilir district, and (c) providing MSMEs with an effective approach to assist them in the evaluation and selection of technology.
