No matter your background; designer, developer, tech guru, or just interested in being a part of something different, Startup Weekend Siem Reap is the perfect place to test your talents and gain valuable entrepreneurial experience. Even if you don’t have a business idea of your own you’ll be able to collaborate with others, sharing your skills to make something great.

Throughout the weekend you’ll get a crash course on how to take an idea and turn it into action. Mentors established in the startup community will provide tips and critiques to help you and your team shape a viable business model, which you will then pitch to a panel of judges. Over the 54-hour workshop you’ll also become a more empowered leader and further develop your creative and innovative thinking abilities, priceless skills in the social entrepreneurship world.
