About SISU

Sunway Social Innovation Support Unit is part of Sunway iLabs which is a unique, not- for-profit
concept where 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 ideas and social innovations.

iLabs syncs with the wider start-up and social enterprise ecosystem in Malaysia and
abroad through collaborations and strategic partnerships. It enables social innovators or
entrepreneurs to scale their impact or business faster. What’s more interesting about
Sunway SISU is that it has two physical spaces one that caters for startups and corporates
which also doubles a co-working space (for strategic partners) and a second space called
the Makerspace which supports budding entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs in the
university campus.
