The SmartStart Young Innovator programme saw many young teams propose innovative ideas to address existing tech challenges in Cambodia, and GoSoccer and Spare have both recently launched their offerings.
SPARE were first to launch, with their office and coworking space booking platform. They already have over 100 spaces available to book through SPARE, and are adding more regularly.
“Now users can search from their phones to book, review and host short-term venues, event spaces, indoor and outdoor spaces in an economical and efficient way,” Co-Founder Soeun Tharith said during the launch event at Sahaka coworking space in August.
GoSoccer’s launch a week after SPARE means that football players can now book pitches across Phnom Penh via the app, reducing the hassle of having to call around to various facilities to check availability.
Sale and Marketing Manager Sovann Lyhour noted in the press release accompanying the launch that the team behind the app were excited at the prospect of improving the sporting landscape in Cambodia.
“We spotted a need, we worked on our idea, and now we are pleased to launch what we know will be a popular solution to the stress of organising football pitches. Download the app and play more football!”
Geeks in Cambodia would like to offer our congratulations to both GoSoccer and SPARE! Your clear energy and passion for developing Cambodia’s tech space is great to see. We look forward to what SmartStart and SmartSpark programmes will produce next with the invaluable support of Impact Hub, and you can be sure to read about it all via our website.
