At the end of 2020, Diponegoro University received a proud award as the first winner in a national competition. This achievement is achieved by Undip students team at Indonesian Student Entrepreneurship Expo (KMI) XI 2020 organized by the Directorate General of Higher Education, Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia.

The consistency of Indofishery.id team in developing a business is an additional point that makes it a start-up which is capable to compete in this global era. The achievement as the first winner is an appreciation for the start-up formed by the alumni of FPIK Undip.
