ABOUT US

Sunway iLabs is a unique, not-for-profit concept in which Sunway University, Sunway Group, and Sunway Ventures (Sunway’s Corporate Venture Capital arm) work closely together in a collaborative space to foster entrepreneurship and stimulate market-driven innovations. 

The same way that Sunway City Kuala Lumpur went from a wasteland to a wonderland, iLabs was formed to cultivate an ecosystem for startups to do the same – building ideas and potentially evolving this city to the next level. As our students, researchers, experts and academia come together to generate sustainable solutions, we have given rise to Sunway Living Lab, focusing on six key verticals – Smart Cities, Edutech, Digital Health Tech, Agri-food Tech, e-Commerce & Fintech.

Over the years, we have expanded our bases to 3 locations in Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, namely Menara Sunway, Sunway University & Sunway FutureX.

AWARDS

Awarded the Malaysia Digital Hub in 2017

Awarded the #1 Startup Ecosystem in Malaysia in 2019

Awarded the Outstanding Incubator / Coworking Space Award in 2021

KEY FOCUS AREAS

Disrupting conventional real-estate markets through the use of artificial intelligence, blockchain and IoT to reimagine and transform the use of space. Through technology and new innovations, we aim to build sustainable cities which are smarter and healthier, while improving consumers’ convenience, connectivity and quality of life.

Complementing the education landscape through impact-driven teaching and learning tools to disrupt traditional education systems, by providing peer-to-peer, gamification, problem solving and hands-on learning on our campus.

Supporting healthcare organisations to enhance the efficiency of healthcare delivery through personalised, efficient and cutting-edge medical solutions. Harnessing the power of data and in-depth analysis, we are also looking to solve problems related to preventive health conditions such as non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and deep tech in healthcare.

Addressing challenges with tech-driven solutions throughout the farm-to-fork supply chain to create impact both upstream and downstream. The need to scale clean and healthy food production in Malaysia is vital, and we are looking to build decentralised smart urban farms throughout our cities across the country, with the goal of improving Malaysia’s national food security.

Empowering businesses to adopt eCommerce and digital solutions for faster growth, to reach new markets and to explore additional revenue streams. Together with our partners, we aim to build a holistic ecosystem by providing innovative solutions such as O2O enablers, logistics, omni-channel marketing, payment and security.

Through our Fintech ecosystem, we aim to enhance and automate financial processes and services in our bid to promote financial inclusion for Malaysians and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), aligned with the UN-SDG 10 of Reducing Inequalities.
