StartupBootcamp FastTrack Tour hits Phnom Penh

Get ready for an intense day of FinTech events on 2 December this year as StartupBootcamp(SBC) FinTech’s FastTrack tour arrives in the Kingdom.

For almost 13 hours, two FinTech events will be held back to back for you to get ideas for the next great FinTech startup! These events include the FinTech Office Hours in the day followed by Startup FinTech Social in the evening!

Starting in the morning with FinTech Office Hours, this FastTrack event is a great chance for you to set up an individualised meet-up between the FinTech team and your startup.

It’ll give you a little taste of the SBC programme as you’ll be given the chance to pitch your startup idea to the FinTech team and get invaluable feedback. Last year, 2 startups received investment and yet another 5 startups closed partnerships from the connections made at these FastTrack events.

After the event, you’ll also be better equipped to apply for FinTech’s accelerator programme. If you’re one of the 10 startups selected from the region, you’ll be given the opportunity to undergo an intense 3-month acceleration period in Singapore.

During the acceleration period, you will get to interact with over 400 mentors, partners and investors to bring your FinTech product to the next level. Additionally, each selected team will also gain access to top markets in Europe, the US and the Asia Pacific along with 3+3 months of free Office Space and 25,000SGD in cash!

While competition for spaces will be tough, we at Geeks in Cambodia know that there are great FinTech ideas out there in the Kingdom waiting to be tapped on. After all, a fellow FinTech Startup in Cambodia, BanhJi, had broken through last year! So we know that there is loads of potential to make a significant impact in the FinTech scene right here in the Kingdom.

If you need more reasons to sign up for FinTech’s Office Hours, here are three ways mentioned in SBC’s press release that lets them stand out from other accelerators.

  • Undivided interest and expertise in helping startups succeed – SBC promises that their partners will collectively offer you their expertise to help startups succeed
  • Partnerships Throughout Asia – SBC will connect startups with the financial industry in Singapore and throughout the Asia Pacific
  • Global Expansion Channels – The SBC network also expands to countries like New York, London and Mumbai which presents startups with unparalleled network opportunities in these countries!

With so much to gain from attending SBC FastTrack Office Hour Event, hesitate no longer and sign up here!

After the Office Hours event ends at 3pm, catch a breather and return once again for Startup FinTech Social in the evening! Rub shoulders with industry experts and engage in a panel discussion on “Opportunities for Southeast Asian SME’s in FinTech”.
