Started in 2015, the Sabah Shell LiveWIRE programme engages with entrepreneurs who are committed to starting and growing their business ideas.

Your business idea could be around social enterprises and the community, or an innovation that will revolutionise the world; no matter what it may be, the Sabah Shell LiveWIRE programme is here to help you make it a reality.

The programme takes entrepreneurs through a series of workshops that will assist them in generating or enhancing their business ideas, testing their business models and preparing them to be successful business owners. Towards the end of the programme, participants will partake in a pitching workshop and a competition that aim to provide the necessary skills for entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.

Five winners will be chosen, and these winners will win a RM10,000 grant alongside mentorship and guidance to kickstart their businesses, from the Sabah Shell LiveWIRE facilitators for the next three years. To date, almost 200 entrepreneurs have participated in this programme.

This year, the programme is extending its reach and bringing its ‘Bright Ideas’ workshops to Penampang (22nd September), Keningau (6th October) and Kota Kinabalu (13th October). If you are a Sabahan above the age of 18 and committed towards turning your business ideas into a reality, it’s time to register and be a part of the Sabah Shell LiveWIRE programme.

Register today at and live your dream!
