NCubation invites Iwan Sunito, Chairman & CEO of Crown Group, to share his journey to revolutionising the architecture industry.
This event is part of the NCubation Business Launchpad, an interactive 3 months business incubator program powered by Navanti Holdings & 11th Space. For the first time ever, we are opening our session to the public with very limited slots available.
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great”
Join us for an inspirational evening with Iwan Sunito, Chairman & CEO of Crown Group.
Iwan Sunito graduated from University of NSW with honours in Architecture and was awarded the UNSW Eric Daniels award for excellence in residential design in 1992. He later finished his Master of Construction Management and started his own business as an architect in 1996, kickstarting his career with his first residential development in Sydney.
More than 20 years later, Crown Group has grown to hold a $5 billion portfolio in five cities across Australia, the US and Indonesia. It has expanded from creating residential apartments to developing shopping centres, hotels and its own fund management platform.
The Crown Group philosophy is about creating not just architecture but art. Its developments are deeply inspired by nature, an influence formed during Iwan’s early childhood growing up near the jungles and rivers of Kalimantan. Each new Crown Group development has changed the fabric of its home city and fostered a new community, offering residents a taste of Crown Group’s signature urban resort lifestyle.
Some of Crown Group’s most notable creations include the iconic Arc by Crown Group, whose 56 white arches transformed the Sydney skyline in 2018; the striking loop-design of Infinity by Crown Group at Green Square; and the 28-storey V by Crown Group, the biggest luxury development in Parramatta. Its latest, the lush and tropical Waterfall by Crown Group in Waterloo, setting a new benchmark for greenery in an urban setting.
Today, Crown Group has six major developments underway including a $500 million Japanese-inspired community, Mastery by Crown Group, being developed in Waterloo with Mitsubishi Estate Asia. Nearby, Eastlakes Live by Crown Group, is set to become Sydney’s most exciting new address.
Crown Group is set to launch its first residential projects in Brisbane and Melbourne, and another in the US next year – a stunning residential and hotel tower in the flourishing area of Downtown LA.
In the company’s nearly three-decade history, Crown Group has been recognised by more than 30 prestige awards including: 2018 Urban Development Institute’s Best Mixed-Use Development for V by Crown Group; 2017 Property Council of Australia’s One of the World’s Best Projects for Infinity by Crown Group; 2017 Master Builders Association Best Residential and Mixed-Use Development for Skye by Crown Group.
Among many of Iwan’s achievements, he was named 2015 Urban Taskforce Australia Property Person of the Year, one of the highest industry accolades in Australia. He was also a winner in the 2013 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards and awarded the 2013 Congress of Indonesian Diaspora Entrepreneur award.
But his passion lies in giving back to the community – a desire that arose from his experience overcoming his own early setbacks during school. He does this via mentoring, addressing business summits and training thousands of future leaders across the globe. His heart’s desire is to give hope and guidance to younger generations across the world.
Iwan’s first book ‘From Borneo to Bloomberg, A Comeback Story and 13 Principles of Success’ was published in 2014. It took three years to write his biography ‘Without Borders’, with writer Teguh Pambudi, which became a best-seller in his home country, Indonesia.
