We would like to thank all students and staff who have voted for them since yesteday. Your supports are truly magical! Thank you!
Both teams began their entrepreneurial journey at UTP since their 1st and 2nd Year study. They are also the recipients of MicroBiz seed funding provided by Technopreneurship Office and Yayasan UTP. Their achievements proved that you can be successful if you start early and even with low startup capital. What is more important is the patience, tenacity, perseverance, hardwork and network that you build in developing your venture.
We are so proud of their achievements. We hope it will inspire many more students to follow their footsteps. It’s never too late to dream big. What is important - take that first step. Find a problem to solve, and build a venture in solving that problem.
