Become an Impact Hub Mentor...

...And support the next generation of Cambodian Impact Makers

"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.

Everyday at Impact Hub Phnom Penh we meet bright, motivated and talented young people who want to change the world, and start a business. We’ve been running programs for over 3 years to help them achieve their dreams, and provide them with the tools, skills and support they need to thrive and create impact.

But we can’t do it alone. Entrepreneurs, future leaders, and changemakers need mentors to guide them, inspire them and motivate them to develop and achieve their goals.

Interested in contributing to social change through mentoring? Read below to find out more about these fulfilling and much-needed mentor roles!

Why does Impact Hub do mentoring?

  • To provide a wide range of skills for very diverse needs, levels of development of start-ups, and personalities
  • To give mentors exposure to the thriving and emerging startup entrepreneurial scene of Cambodia

What is an Impact Hub mentor?

Impact Hub mentors are professionals who volunteer their time to help entrepreneurs to grow and develop their business and themselves. A great mentor is someone who can build a long-term relationship with the entrepreneur or startup team. They are a source of advice, guidance, encouragement & support, and are never there to judge.

We have two types of mentors at Impact Hub, ongoing mentors and one-off mentors. Ongoing mentors are matched with 1-3 teams with whom they meet once a month for 2 hours. We also have mentors who provide one-off technical support in their specialist topic area to startup teams who need this support. They may meet with several teams once or twice each to offer them the guidance they need to overcome specific challenges.

Check out some of the fantastic teams we work with at Impact Hub Phnom Penh.

What is an Impact Hub Mentor not?

  • A teacher - you will not need to chase entrepreneurs if they don’t complete the work or tell them off if they fail.
  • A consultant - you will not go out and do the work for entrepreneurs.
  • Their boss - they do not need to report to you or ask permission to make changes to plans.
  • Their best friend - we will help you make sure appropriate boundaries are set.
