CAMESCO is an initiative within the Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Building (EEB) Project, jointly funded by Khmer Enterprise, established by the Ministry of Economy and Finance in Cambodia, USAID’s WE Act Project through Pact Cambodia, and Swisscontact. Aside from CAMESCO, there are two main initiatives within EEB, Give a Day and Ecosystem Builders Network (EBN).
CAMESCO aims to build a network with like-minded stakeholders to strengthen Cambodia’s entrepreneurship and investment ecosystem. This allows for showcasing the best practices in promoting collaboration and trust building and fostering an entrepreneurship culture among ESOs and system actors. CAMESCO is envisioned as a regular annual conference for all the ecosystem actors to strengthen deal flows in Cambodia.
CAMESCO 22 has been organized with the objective of recapping the year-round progress of the 10 Give a Day events, 3 EBN, and other ecosystem-strengthening meetings. The key results of the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Building Program emphasized the gaps and market opportunities in Cambodia’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. Among other activities, the announcement of new programs that would be launched in 2023, and actions to be undertaken to strengthen the Cambodian entrepreneurial ecosystem were discussed. Some key topics that participants dwelled on supported entrepreneurship, trade, market, investment, and financing.
