What is Phum Impact?

Phum Impact is a grassroots initiative to launch locally rooted communities outside the capital city of Phnom Penh, in order to scale the Impact Hub methodology to new parts of Cambodia. 


Importantly, Phum Impact communities are not led by IHPP, but rather by local key players- who have a deeper understanding of the challenges facing youth in their communities.  They can then grow and evolve their Phum Impact based on their communities’ needs, with the full support of Impact Hub to get them started.


Impact Hub will be providing seed funding, intensive coaching, resources and program and community-building methodologies to provide a launchpad for successful community development. 

Why Now?

Over the last 5 years, we’ve designed and tested a great number of ways to contribute to the growth of Phnom Penh’s startup ecosystem- through our programs, network and community, and events.

But there’s one problem: almost everything we do is based in Phnom Penh.

Phum Impact, complimented with our online learning platform, is how we’ll scale Impact Hub’s content, community and learning experience to support those who live in other parts of the country such as Siem Reap and Battambang.

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved, and we want to share everything we’ve learnt to help new communities and new entrepreneurs outside of Phnom Penh. There’s no time to waste- the next 5-10 years will be pivotal in ensuring the leaders of tomorrow have the skills and support to build a more sustainable and innovative Cambodia.

We’re looking for Phum Impact Founders

The success of Phum Impact lies on finding the awesome teams to take on the long term vision to lead and grow Phum Impact. 

Are you living in Siem Reap or Battambang? Are you Impact Hub’s biggest fans? Ever dreamt of starting your very own community, full of events, programs and mentors just like Impact Hub…?

If you are passionate about bringing the Impact Hub to your city and feel confident that you can build and engage a thriving community of “impact makers”, we are excited to help you make it happen.
