Two weeks ago, we had the opportunity to visit the brand new 10-acre KDU University College Utropolis Glenmarie Campus.

We are very excited and looking forward to be based in the newly designed campus. Old and new students will be inspired by its aesthetic architectural design. The campus also features green initiatives and other architectural elements that support efficient consumption of energy and water.

Buy A Designpreneur Tee

When KDU Diploma of Entrepreneurial Design was first conceptualised, we envisioned that our students would be able to acquire the design skills they need to turn their ideas into tangible products. They will also learn entrepreneurial skill to prepare them with an extra option to kickstart their own enterprises. This initiative serves exactly those objectives.

Here are the designpreneurs with their first range of tees. Each designer projects his/her identity with original design and strong concept. Not only that, these t-shirts are available for sale at RM25 per piece. Click the images to enlarge. To make your purchase, fill in the order form here.

3D Printing – The next design revolution

IMG-20140724-WA0002

It was SCCA’s (School of Communication and Creative Arts) Media & Creative Arts Week. For the design theme, we had a chance to invite MakerZone, a Malaysia-owned crowdsourcing 3D design platform.

The sharing session was conducted by CEO of Makerzone, Mak Kwan Wuey who spoke about the history of 3D printing, the different types of 3D printers, the rules of 3D design for 3D printing and its application. The most interesting part of the talk was seeing a 3D design developed using software being transformed into a real piece of product that can be commercialised.

#TeamCreventive at MaGIC MyAccelerace – The Ultimate Entrepreneurial Challenge

This post is certainly long overdue. But it’s better late than never.

In conjunction with the launch of MaGIC (Malaysian Global Innovation & Creative Centre) on April 26, our #TeamCreventive (Creative + Inventive + Distinctive) made up of lecturer/entrepreneur Farah Izyan and first year Entrepreneurial Design students Kristopher Toon and Sarah Shakeera managed to squeeze into the list of 20 teams of entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs who took part in the MyAccelerace at Cyberjaya.

The race was an exciting 1-day race where 60 participants battled it out with each other over the course of 10 checkpoints and 6 hours of adrenaline-filled fun. The event not only tested the mental and physical mettle of startup and aspiring entrepreneurs, it also mimicked the real-life scenario of the world of entrepreneurship where daily challenges and competition is the norm.

Here are some snapshots taken during the race.

Slow and steady!

Persuasive and selling skills are needed in this race. #TeamCreventive did just fine.

Good pitches will open doors to new customers, investors, partners, endorsements and more.

At the end of the race, #TeamCreventive produced a video that was shot entirely on smartphone throughout the race.

Although #TeamCreventive did not win the top prizes, it was a great exposure for our first year first semester Entrepreneurial Design students to meet other young entrepreneurs who have the same aspirations as them at such rare event.
