Impact Hub Phnom Penh Mentoring Program

"When I didn't have a mentor I didn't know my real potential, having a mentor has helped me learn how to run a startup and find my way, be connected with the right people and to not feel alone on this journey" Kun Navorth, Vibe Soul.

What is a mentor and why should you have one?

A mentor is a professional who has volunteered their time to offer advice, guidance, encouragement and support to you and your team. They are never there to judge, and they are not like a teacher, boss or colleague. This means they will not tell you what to do or do the work for you!

Starting a business is not easy and noone should have to do it alone! Entrepreneurs, future leaders, and changemakers need mentors to guide them, inspire them and motivate them to develop and achieve their goals. That’s why we’ve recruited awesome leaders with a diverse set of skills. Learn more about each of our mentors below.

Who can access Impact Hub mentors?

We offer support to program alumni through our Hub Entrepreneurs Club, including regular Masterclasses, access to mentors, and our extensive network. We know it takes time to start a business, so as long as you are actively working on a startup, you can be a member of the club.

Not joined a program? You can still apply to join Hub Entrepreneurs Club if you are Cambodian and currently working on a startup with a social or environmental purpose. We will review your application and invite you for an informal meeting to see if we can offer the right support for you.

You can apply using this form, or get in touch with Abi ( if you have any questions, we’d love to hear from you!
