Aloysius Ang Yu Chien
BSc (Hons) Information Technology
I am a co-founder of COREDGE, an innovation developer agency which exists to bring ideas to life and business into future. As a graduate from both Sunway University and Sunway College – with a BSc (Hons) Information Technology – I have a passion in tech innovation, and enjoy educating people about tech. Apart from being a geek, I love to hunt for the best food in town, and to meet new people.
At a young age, I developed a growing interest in computers and technology, and was fascinated by how machines are able to improve the way people live, work and play. I was firm about my career path to be a computer engineer - that is, until my education at Sunway exposed me to the world of entrepreneurship. With the help of the lecturers, I was able to piece both technology and business together. The university also did play its part in providing me with a platform to shine – and by the Grace of God, I won a Silver Medal for Innovation (for the Smartphone Based Auxiliary System for Drivers) at the Malaysia Technology Expo 2014, and got third place in the IDEAs Business Startup Competition!
Upon graduation, I worked as a software developer in ApptivityLab before cofounding COREDGE, for which I am the project lead. With a team of awesome individuals, we set out to build amazing websites and mobile applications. I have experience working with prominent companies – such as Astro and iMoney – as well as other SMEs and start-ups. One of ALUMNI ON THE MOVE 22 my greatest accomplishments so far was partnering with an Australian start-up to build an app which was then featured in the Apple App Store as “Best New App” and “Best Fashion App”.
I am constantly on the move, wanting to change the world through ideas, codes and products. Have Faith!
