Indonesia in 2030 is predicted to face a demographic bonus, during which time the number of productive age population will be greater than non-productive population. In responding to this phenomenon, the efforts made are preparing quality human resources, one of which is by fostering an interest in entrepreneurship. The purpose of this research is to increase the knowledge, skills, and interest in digital-based entrepreneurship among thin students in the SKB Medan non-formal education unit. Training is carried out using an andragogical approach with the following stages: planning intensive training activities, implementing, monitoring, evaluating, and following up. The indicators of interest in entrepreneurship that were measured in this study were: (1) social prestige, (2) personal challenge, (3) innovation, (4) leadership, (5) flexibility, and (6) profit. The method used is a pre-experimental design with a one shot case study design. The results of the project concluded that digital-based entrepreneurship training played a role in fostering interest in entrepreneurship in course students. Then their concrete achievements are that they have business collaboration groups, they are able to read opportunities by creating business maps, they are able to promote their products on digital platforms, and register their businesses on market places.
