What is Impact Hub Phnom Penh?
Impact Hub Phnom Penh is an innovation space, a business incubator, a social enterprise builder and above all, a community of like-minded people who believe they can make the world a better place.
Where do you go if you have an entrepreneurial idea that might radically change the world for the better? As we are facing multiple crises in the global economic, social and ecological spheres, innovative solutions are needed to tackle the many challenges at hand. Impact Hub is designed to facilitate these solutions by creating a global network of collaborative spaces where entrepreneurs and social innovators come together to realise their ideas for a sustainable society.
When we started 5 years ago in Cambodia, we found there wasn't any meaningful support systems in place for entrepreneurs, innovators and organisations who want to have a positive impact. We met so many people doing incredible things, but with a lack of community uniting them. This is how our journey began, and since then we have created communities surrounding social causes, innovation, and entrepreneurship with hundreds of members.
One of the first communities we created was Social Enterprise Cambodia, a platform that connects social enterprises in Cambodia. Check out the website here.
Impact Hub Phnom Penh aligns itself and all its activities with the global Sustainable Development Goals, and we proudly display them in our space to inspire our community to do the same. Our community manifesto helps members to see the values we stand by and the kind of people you can expect to meet at Impact Hub Phnom Penh.
We have big visions for the future. We position ourselves at the forefront of the startup ecosystem in Cambodia, working to support grassroots talent and innovation, whilst advocating for meaningful ecosystem support from the private and public sector, and government.
Our commitment to our social vision:
Impact Hub Phnom Penh operates as a social enterprise. We commit to reinvesting any net profits made into achieving our social mission.
What are Impact Hubs?
As a network we share the mission to support and develop social enterprises, based around the world. Acting locally, connected globally.
We believe there is no shortage of good ideas in this world but an acute lack of supportive ecosystems to help make them happen. Already present in 100+ cities and 40+ emerging around the world, Impact Hub combines the best of a trusted community, innovation space, and incubator to create a habitat for social innovation; locally embedded and globally connected. We build communities that enable and grow collaborative ventures while supporting the passion to create sustainable impact. Impact Hubs unite people from every profession, background and culture with imagination and drive to pursue enterprising ideas for the world.
From Amsterdam to Johannesburg, Singapore to San Francisco, Impact Hub has evolved into a rapidly expanding, diverse global network. Each community is a wealth of innovative programs, events, and cutting -edge content. Step into any one of our Impact Hubs worldwide and immerse yourself in the local experience of a global movement.
