Started in 2016, the Sarawak 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 Sarawak 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 Sarawak Shell LiveWIRE facilitators for the next three years. To date, almost 150 entrepreneurs have participated in this programme.

In 2017, the Sarawak Shell LiveWIRE programme partnered with the TEGAS Digital Innovation Hub, who not only provided the facilities and guidance to run this programme, but also presented each winner an additional Rm5,000, on top of the Sarawak Shell LiveWIRE grant.

This year, the programme will kick off with the ‘Bright Ideas’ workshops in Kuching (15th September), Miri (22nd September) and Bintulu (30th September). If you are a Sarawakian 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 Sarawak Shell LiveWIRE programme.
