This year is a wrap! Raintree reviews 2017

After a hectic start to 2017, we’ve had a chance to reflect on what has been one crazzzy year. The team hit some big milestones with our design and construction completed in just 12 months, launching the development in autumn and finally our grand opening last December. It has been a rollercoaster ride filled with both challenges, learnings and accomplishments. Take a look at our review of 2017 here.

Cambodia riding the Valley wave?

Cambodia riding the Valley wave?

Cambodia has seen a sharp rise in entrepreneurial and tech competitions over the past decade. They come in various forms, from one-day pitches, two-day hackathons, to several rounds over several months. They also target different demographics from as early as secondary school students, through more mature business professionals. While venture capital is still in its infancy in Cambodia (at least by the Silicon Valley definition), competitions are a positive sign of things to come. Here's an overview of some of the startup competitions in Cambodia that Raintree has been excited to engage with this year.
