★ Last Ones Standing - A Startup Challenge 2016 ★


The objectives of this competition are to nurture students’ entrepreneurial spirit through a start-up competition, and to develop the skills of students in developing a new startup. Participants of the competition will be given workshops and guidance before having to pitch their business proposal to a panel of esteemed judges in the finale. Here at LOS, we aim to inculcate budding entrepreneurs with the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation, by learning from experienced entrepreneurs themselves.


For LOS, we wish to educate the student population about entrepreneurship and help augment the entrepreneurship ecosystem here in Australia and back in Malaysia. Our goal is to see participants of our challenge to one day themselves be part of a high-growth, high impact startups that will succeed on a global scale.
