For the second year running, the SUGIC 2015 gives you the opportunity to win a place in the Graduate Studies Program (GSP) at Singularity University (SU), a one of its kind interdisciplinary, international and intercultural organization which challenges participants to use transformative, exponential technologies to address global grand challenges. SU educates, empowers and inspires participants to discover and design sustainable solutions to positively impact 1 billion people in the next ten years. SU is located on the campus of NASA Research Park in Silicon Valley, one of the world’s greatest epicenters of innovation.

Singularity University Global Impact Competition 2015 
Brought to you by Genovasi and ECM Libra Foundation in Malaysia, the Global Impact Competition 2015 offers Malaysians the platform to showcase their innovative ideas and offer them the opportunity to work on that idea in Silicon Valley.

The Global Impact Competition 2015 invites you to submit your idea that answers this one question :

“What new product or service can you create, through leveraging technology, that could improve the lives of at least one million Malaysians within the next three to five years?”

Should your idea be selected, you will win a much sought after seat at the Graduate Studies Program at Singularity University, NASA Ames Research Park, in Silicon Valley and be mentored and inspired by top technologists and specialists in their field from around the world that you have only read about.
