On 17 June, Khmer Enterprise, WE Act via Pac and Swisscontact organized the 5th “Give a Day” monthly meeting which is an initiative within the Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Building (EEB) Project. The meeting was attended by 38 participants representing investors, start-ups, support organizations, Government among others. 

The discussions of the 5th Give a Day centered around the “Identifying Startup Type, Optimal Business Models and Startups that are Funding Grade”. There was a lively discussion on terminologies around Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) versus Startups as well as guidance was provided on what is needed to nurture and successfully raise entrepreneurs in strengthening Cambodia’s startup ecosystem.
