IMPACT HUB Phnom Penh: Hub Academy for Inspiring Entrepreneurs

For the first time in Phnom Penh, Impact Hub will be holding exciting and unique courses that will help aspiring entrepreneurs take their passion for business and dreams to operate responsibly with positive impact and turn them into reality.

Hub Academy combines lectures, presentations from inspiring entrepreneurs, case studies, field research and group work to make the course enjoyable, relevant and as interactive as possible. To be held for slightly over a year, with one session per month, attendees can expect to learn how to understand your consumers, beneficiaries and even to build positive solutions out of a strong business model. Attendees can also expect to learn how to create a prototype and to develop a marketing campaign to understand your finance and investment opportunities.

In partnership with Transparency International Cambodia, attendees can expect to find out more about the importance of responsible business, understanding legal and taxation requirements and get tips on how to avoid the threat of corruption.

Organised with the busy individual in mind, Hub Academy will be held once a month, with one topic for one month. View the image below to get an idea as to what you can expect.
