It is also designed to integrate the global co-working movement with the local entrepreneurial communities of Southeast Asia.

With a community of both Cambodian and visiting international entrepreneurs, we believe we provide a nexus where ideas and skills can come together and foster exciting opportunities,” said Outpost’s co-founder, Bryan Stewart.

Similarly, for Geeks In Cambodia, we believe that this competition is definitely a great avenue for local startups and small businesses; especially with the already bustling and innovative startup ecosystem we have here in the Kingdom!
