SmartSpark: Light a Spark for Young Cambodian Innovators

By Alicia Leck

Calling all young innovators looking to turn their ideas into a startup business! Smart Spark Cohort 2, the second series of incubator programmes hosted by Smart Axiata and Impact Hub Phnom Penh, is set to launch on 15th December 2018!

Smart Spark is a 3-month programme designed to support young innovators. It aims to find and help innovative startups tackling Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in Cambodia. This cohort will be focused on goals 4, 5, and 10 which are Quality Education, Gender Equality and Reduced Inequalities respectively.

To celebrate the launch of the second cohort, inspirational speakers and experts will be there to talk about the work they do in these fields. This will be followed by a panel discussion focused on how we can use entrepreneurship to contribute in solving disabilities issues in Cambodia.

6 teams tackling issues in these areas will be selected for the programme with one team winning $3,000 worth of investment for their idea.
