The objective of this paper is to discuss the efforts and initiatives of various parties towards strengthening the ecosystem in producing Higher Education Institutions (HEI) graduates who have an entrepreneurial orientation, inclined towards careers as entrepreneurs and have the confidence to create job opportunities. This study uses a qualitative method which is a document analysis study or a library study where a survey of secondary sources whether online that refer to articles, books, papers, forums, and government policies related to the entrepreneurial ecosystem of HEIs is done. The results of the study examine a selection of contemporary issues that dominate the latest discussions regarding the entrepreneurial mindset among students.
