The co-founder, Ms Su Myat Mon went through another path of education system in Singapore.

She has strong International Industrial working experience in SingTel (one of the best Tele-com companies in Singapore) , Telenor and MPT Myanmar.
It is through thick and thin that the founders get to where they are today. It was not an easy decision for them to come home after living overseas for more than a decade, even more so to start a new Institute in Yangon which is not even their hometown. It is the sole purpose of providing quality education for the youths that drive them to set up iSTAR.
