A mixed-methods approach was employed, combining quantitative surveys with qualitative in-depth interviews and focus group discussions.

Quantitative findings revealed that a significant portion of the population in West Java has high levels of entrepreneurship awareness (40%) and digital literacy (35%). Moreover, 60% of respondents reported engagement with startups. Qualitative insights from interviews and focus group discussions emphasized the inspirational role of startups, their contribution to skill development, and the potential for collaboration between startups and educational institutions.
