In 2021, Swisscontact under Credit Suisse—Swisscontact (CSSC) initiative in partnership with Khmer Enterprise implemented by EuroCham, we piloted “Give a Day” tool to promote collaboration between entrepreneurial support organizations (ESOs), and the tool has indicated traction in strengthening entrepreneurial networks to form high quality connection to support entrepreneurship.
After a successful of our pilot, Khmer Enterprise and Swisscontact are pleased to welcome Pact’s WE Act Project joining the 2022 initiative together to enhance the entrepreneurial ecosystem by deepening trust-based relationships among ESOs. This collaboration is jointly funded by Khmer Enterprise, Pact’s WE Act Project and Swisscontact.
For this year's initiative, “Give a Day” will be continued to build connections and trust between ESOs by facilitating monthly events where ESOs openly share and jointly work together to overcome existing challenges. There are two new components added. 1) development partners and ecosystem builders to improve entrepreneurial ecosystem gaps and market opportunities through quarterly meetings to share progress programs and exchange information and challenges, and 2) an entrepreneurial ecosystem annual conference to build a network with like-minded stakeholders and show the best practices to promoting and entrepreneurship culture and foster peer-to-peer learning and sharing between stakeholders.
This unique partnership between Khmer Enterprise, Swisscontact and Pact via WE Act will support entrepreneurship, building trust, increasing knowledge, solving problems and connecting entrepreneurs together where endless opportunities await.
