Good news for all the startup enthusiasts and tech savvy people out there: BarCamp Cambodia is back! After three successful editions this year in Ratakanari in April, Kampong Cham in June and in Kampot in July, the Barcamp team adds on a fourth event.
This time the host will be the beautiful city of Siem Reap. The concept remains the same: empowering young Cambodians with talks from speakers sharing their entrepreneurial, tech or digital experiences. As usual, attendees will have the opportunity to interact directly with speakers, as this unconference format between the speakers and the audience is one of the specificities that made BarCamp so popular and recognized.
There will be 40 speakers from Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, USA, Singapore and Australia. They will cover various topics such as the use of technology for learning and communication or knowledge sharing about starting a business, defining a business model, understanding the customer, virtual media, marketing and business planning, and much more.
The overall program of event activities is as follows:
- Event Opening and Keynote
- Startup Showcase and Exhibition
- Mekong Region Startup Talk
- Mekong ICT4D Discussion
- Session sharing – 42 topics
Here are also some examples of sessions you can attend:
- The Potential of Online Selling for Business Nowaday by Pirath Vat
- Smartphone Video by Sotheavy AT
- How to make money with Facebook Instant Articles by Meng Edeth
- Understanding Startup Business in Cambodia and Asean reign by Chantra Be
This conference will provide the audience with a great deal of thought on how to grow an idea into a startup.
