Background and history


SmallWorld Cambodia was founded in December 2011 as a collaborative workspace by a group of progressive young Cambodians to pilot their business ideas in an affordable, friendly and open work environment. 


As Cambodia’s first homegrown startup community, SmallWorld provides a venue for aspiring business-minded youth to nurture and develop their own creative money-making ideas.

During the past five years, SmallWorld has worked side-by-side with emerging young business leaders, encouraging and providing support for success in fields of technology, software, tourism, B2B services, food services, publishing, advertising, fine arts and more. 

We actively seek out opportunities to fund the next great idea, always on the watch for new and innovative ways to provide incentives for committed leaders who are determined to build strong management teams. 

Through our physical space, along with training and mentorship programs, we’ve provided opportunities for well over fifty startup teams and successful local ventures including Amoogli, ArcHUB, ArrowDot, BookMeBus, CamWP, Chenla Media, Codingate, Moineer, Sky Architecture, Toursanak, and X design. 

The SmallWorld community of business startups is encouraged to work together, leveraging each other's strengths, while those with established success often give back through mentoring and capital investment.
