The Start-It Challenge is a competition organised by Sunway iLabs (a not-for-profit under Sunway University) to challenge students from universities in Selangor to identify problems and create their own solutions or to solve problems faced by a select number of companies.

The three skillsets that we aim to instil in students from this challenge are:

Problem solving through design thinking
An understanding of business plans/ models
How to effectively communicate and pitch ideas

The top three winners will be awarded cash prizes and will receive an offer to join Sunway iLabs’ accelerator programme to further nurture the ideas. Other participants stand a chance to get an interview with a select number of companies for employment or an internship.

  • An idea or a solution to a problem
  • Answer a few questions and submit the online form on the Sunway iLabs website
