What is IDEA APP Cambodia EIP?

This is the second edition of the Cambodia EIP: an incubation program developed by Khmer Enterprise and UNIDO Cambodia through the implementation of a UN joint program on the “Decent Employment for Youth in Cambodia” funded by the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC).

This program is part of the larger IDEA App Programs created by UNIDO and Bridge for Billions in 10 countries.

Since its launch, the program has been making entrepreneurial education accessible to Cambodians who are on their way to starting new businesses.

The program will also offer you the confidence and certainty of validated business ideas from potential clients. After the completion of the program, you will receive a customized executive summary of your business plan and present it to potential investors or new co-founders.

The IDEA App platform at a glance

As the backbone of the program, the IDEA App platform offers a gamified and step by step experience that allows entrepreneurs to create their business plans and validate their model. Far from theory, the pedagogy pushes you to formulate your ideas and answer the tough questions.

It invites you to “get out there”, talk to people, research, and validate your ideas. Your mentor will be there for you every week to support you by challenging assumptions and offering a fresh perspective.
