Take the Initiative to Step Up!
Jayven Koh and Eugene Lim, from RP School of Engineering, had not ridden a motorcycle before. However, when a classmate had his NETS CashCard stolen, they stepped up to prevent CashCard theft.
"We wanted to create a solution that ensures peace of mind for all motorcyclists," Jayven shares.
RP’s iDARE Entrepreneurial Challenge 2022 provided a platform for them to turn their idea into reality. Working closely with their mentors from RP — Ms Rachel Poo, Associate Lecturer, RP School of Management and Communication, Ms Tan Zhen Ling, Lecturer, RP School of Engineering, and Mr Lim Boon Hong, Manager, RP Office of Entrepreneurship Development (OED) — the team navigated key business and technical considerations as they conceptualised a solution.
The day of the iDARE finals proved eventful for the duo, even though it was their first time pitching in front of a large audience. Their invention, aptly named 'Cylock', features a self-installed security solution that helps prevent cashcard thefts in motor vehicles. This ingenious prototype landed them the champion spot.
