About Us

Launched in 2017, Sunway iLabs aims to foster entrepreneurship and stimulate market-driven innovations, to help entrepreneurs become more competitive in this rapidly changing environment.

We are a unique, non-profit, smart partnership between a large conglomerate, a Venture Capital unit, and a University (Sunway Group, Sunway Ventures/ SunSea Capital and Sunway University).

It is well connected with the wider start-up ecosystem in Malaysia and abroad through collaborations and strategic partnerships, to enable entrepreneurs to scale their business faster.
