SmartScale’s Demo Day on July 25 saw the gathering of many crucial stakeholders of the local startup ecosystem, including startups, investors, accelerators, corporates, the media and the government, who convened at Raintree to watch the pitches of the 11 SmartScale startups.

The programme, a collaboration by Mekong Strategic Partners and Seedstars, covered topics such as consumer targeting, growth and funding strategies specially designed using lean and growth methodologies for faster scaling. This came in the form of various methods, such as workshops with mentors, personal meetings with entrepreneurs in residence and ecosystem dinners.

Here are the startups:

  • Bongpheak: Bongpheak is the first job site in Cambodia specialized in low-skilled and unskilled employment.

  • Searching for the only trusted online shopping in Cambodia, is the first option.

  • Impact Explorer: A solution connecting independent travellers to impactful travel experiences, while changing people’s lives through tourism.

  • DirexPlay: The startup creates fun mobile games that allow you to express yourself and connect with other players to enjoy the moment of the play experience.

  • First Womentech Asia: a SAAS platform for hospitals aiming at modernizing hospitals and healthcare business operations, quality of healthcare service and license fees.

  • Healthogo: A solution providing cost-effective and patient-demand tools for health providers to acquire new customers and maintain existing customers.

  • Muuve: A food delivery service with advanced application to ease today’s busy lifestyles and a platform to support local businesses and Cambodians.

  • RENTKH TECH: RENTKH.COM is an online platform for listing and booking property rental. Their strength is stock of thousands of properties & live update.

  • Wayhome: offers easy to use service solutions to tenants, rental owners, and agents seeking residential and office rental support.

“There has been a major surge in the growth of tech startups, at the same time there is a need for support programmes like SmartScale. Many of these startups still want support to build more sustainable business models, figure out how to scale, come up with scaling strategies, and secure financing. A missing piece is also understanding what investors want, they want to see more diverse teams, they want to see validated business models, they want to see startups that have a deeper understanding of consumer needs. And in turn, SmartScale powered by Seedstars [was created],” explained Kate Heuisler, Chief of Party at DAI, USAID’s Development Innovations.
