Calling all Malaysians, the inaugural Singularity University Global Impact Competition for Malaysia closes tomorrow. All you need to do is upload a 3 minute pitch of an idea that will impact a million Malaysians positively within 5 years to win an opportunity of a lifetime to learn, network and work on a project that will impact a billion people positively in 10 years at Singularity University, living and breathing at NASA Ames Research Park, right next to Google and LinkedIn, etc in Silicon Valley for 10 weeks.

Hi All, a mixed trip to Malaysia. Great to be back home, fantastic to connect with so many new inspiring network of friends. Sad to say farewell to my favourite and last surviving aunt. Enjoyed the discussions I had from the talks I gave at EduCamp and Rotary Subang on Singularity University and Exponential Technologies. Looking forward to doing an encore at Mind Valley tomorrow morning at 10 am before I leave KL next week, Details here:
Mindvalley @ 29th Floor Menara Uoa Bangsar, 5 Jalan Bangsar Utama 1, Taman Bangsar, 59000 Kuala Lumpur
*BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND*
If you had 1 billion dollars, what would you do to impact the lives of a billion people in 3 years?
Singularity University believes in the power of 10^9+. What’s that? The power of exponential impact- by utilizing disruptive and accelerating technologies to solve humanity’s hardest problems.
Last year, they brought together a class of 80 gamechangers already at the top of their field and challenged them to work together in 10 weeks to come up with interdisciplinary solutions like never before. FutureMed, security systems, education, film- you name it, they’ve got it.
One high performing individual that graduated from SU was our very own Dr. Clarence Tan and his mission is to give back what he’s been given.
As an ambassador for Singularity University and Adjunct Professor of Griffith University, he will be here to talk about Singularity University and the impact of Exponential Technologies to Industries and to host a discussion afterwards.
Prepare to be mind-blown. 😉
