Event description

Seedstars World is coming to Phnom Penh for the first time!

Seedstars traditional pitching competition featuring the top 8 best startups from Phnom Penh, will be part of the Cambodia Tech Summit organized by Smart Axiata (October 21st)! This event, consisting of a series of tech talks, panel discussions, exhibitions, and the Seedstars competition, will introduce new ideas, networks, and faces to the tech ecosystem in Cambodia.

Thanks to Smart's support, in addition to the pitching competition Seedstars will be holding a full two-day bootcamp (October 19th and 20th) for 12 startups from Cambodia.

The bootcamp will offer an intense training program for the local startups to help them with their business models, pitches, and more. Both local and international mentors will work with the startups over the course of the two-days, in group and one on one sessions.

The top 8 startups from the Bootcamp will then be invited to pitch in front of an investment panel and compete to be crowned the most promising seed-stage startup of Seedstars Phnom Penh 2018. The winning startup will join the global Seedstars Family and get a free trip to both the Seedstars Asia Regional Summit and the Seedstars Global Summit that include our tried and tested bootcamp and investor forum, and the opportunity to win up to USD 500K in equity investments. It's a catalytic platform for high growth emerging market startups. Winners will also be considered for acceleration in the Seedstars Growth Program.

To be able to put on the extended bootcamp and engage more deeply with the ecosystem in Cambodia, Seedstars is very grateful to be supported by Smart Axiata, the Cambodia’s leading mobile telecommunications operator, committed to its customers, employees
and the people of Cambodia, in delivering its promise of enriching their lives through world-class networks, exceptional digital
experiences and through significant corporate social responsibility engagements.
