Local startups had a lot to look forward to when investment management and advisory services firm Mekong Strategic Partners (MSP) announced their collaboration with Seedstars, a global community and platform for tech entrepreneurs and startups in emerging markets. In the blink of an eye, the acceleration programme “SmartScale powered by Seedstars” is ending! After three months of hard work, the startups are ready to showcase all that they have learned during the Demo Day on July 25, from 8am to 12:30pm.
Early this year, eleven promising early-stage startups were selected for the rigorous curriculum designed to help startups scale faster and reach investment milestones quicker. With guidance from over 20 experienced mentors from all over the world, these startups had opportunities to receive investments from programme partners to raise funds.
Bora Kem, Partner at MSP states, “Mentorship and technical support are crucial for a startup’s long-term success. With SmartScale, we will provide startups with experienced local mentors while partnering with Seedstars to deliver the best-in-class global startup program. We hope to facilitate regional interests in Cambodian startups and to bring them to the global stage.”
