On August 22, seven Cambodia-based ventures participating in Accelerate2030 will have their final pitch at the BRED Bank Cambodia auditorium, from 5:30pm – 9:00pm.
Three best teams will get a chance to continue and join an international nomination round, where they will compete against ventures from 18 other countries, all aspiring to enter the Accelerate2030 Global Scaling Program.
This year, the seven teams that will pitch in front of a panel of business, investment and SDGs experts are Centre for Sustainable Water, My Dream Home, Dine in the Dark, MoanSrae, Peth Yoeung, SmartAgro and TapEffect.
“We are so honored to be working with these seven teams doing a wide variety of important and impactful work across Cambodia, from generating employment opportunities for people with visual impairments, to revolutionizing hospital database management. This pitch is their chance to showcase what they’ve achieved, as well as their exciting scaling plans for even greater impact. It is also an opportunity for them to be selected to compete with international businesses to represent Cambodia in Geneva and make strategic international connections,” said Abigail Perriman, Accelerate2030 Coordinator for Cambodia.
The four-month programme by Impact Hub Phnom Penh and the United Nations Development Programme saw the collaboration between Impact Hub Phnom Penh and entrepreneurs with creative and scalable solutions that tackle the Sustainable Development Goals. The selected ventures received expertise and support to shape their scaling strategy, with tailored one-on-one mentoring and peer-to-peer coaching.
The teams that make it through to the Global Scaling Programme will have the chance to attend Social Good Summit and one week training in Geneva!
