Global Entrepreneurship Community ’17 Roadshow

If networking with fellow entrepreneurs, business partners, ecosystem builders, learning more about Cambodia’s startup ecosystem and discovering new innovations sounds like the perfect way to start your morning, then the Global Entrepreneurship Community ’17 (GECx) Roadshow is just for you!

Hosted at Impact Hub, this is a roadshow by the Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Center (MaGIC) to connect with the key players of the ecosystem in Cambodia. These Malaysian delegates will also be introducing the Kingdom’s startup community to one of the biggest entrepreneur events of the ASEAN region: the Global Entrepreneurship Community 2017 (GECommunity 2017).

GECommunity 2017 is slated to happen in December at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and will bring together ecosystem influencers, startup communities and industry leaders from all over the world to collaborate and search for new innovative approaches to solve real problems, charting the path for new entrepreneurial journeys.

But back to the GECx roadshow happening at Phnom Penh’s very own cozy Impact Hub on the 17th of June, an insightful panel discussion, “Cambodia’s position in the growing ASEAN entrepreneurship ecosystem – opportunities & challenges”, will also be held to introduce fresh opportunities to grow the country’s impact in the ASEAN ecosystem.

Following this panel discussion would also be a series of presentations on the 10×10 project by ASEAN, Collosus Inno2017 Brief by GEM and even an award presentation for the Rice Bowl Awards, a Southeast Asia competition to recognise the best talents of the region’s startup ecosystem, by MyNEF.

After sitting through those informative and enriching talks, you can then stretch your legs and discuss your thoughts and ideas with fellow like-minded players of the startup community over canapés and cocktails.

Neatly wrapping up this engaging roadshow are breakout sessions the 10×10 project, Collosus Inno2017 and the Rice Bowl Awards, allowing you to glean further information on them.
