? SmartSpark Launch event! ?
Smart Axiata and Impact Hub Phnom Penh are excited to launch a series of incubation programs aiming to find and grow innovative startups tackling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Cambodia.
? SmartSpark is a 3-month program designed to support young innovators turn their impact ideas into startup businesses.?
The first cohort will be focusing on SDGs 1, 2, 3 and 6 - No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health & Wellbeing and Clean Water & Sanitation. Six teams tackling issues in these areas will be selected for the program, with one team going on to win $3,000 to invest in their idea.
We’d like to celebrate the launch of the program and the first cohort by exploring some of the issues experience in Cambodia in these three areas.
We’ll hear from inspirational speakers doing amazing work in each area, followed by a panel discussion focusing on how entrepreneurship can contribute to SDG 1: No Poverty in Cambodia.
