EPIC Showcase – Grand Finale


After one intense and memorable year of incubation, our five EPIC teams celebrated the grand finale of the program in September. Rat Hunter, E House, Eco Fresh SE, Edemy and UniQFood joined together to share their experiences of starting a business which aims to have a positive impact on society to a crowded room and live to audiences on Facebook.

The entrepreneurs shared updates on the progress of their businesses, gave important insights in various aspects of start-ups and provided other entrepreneurs with valuable advice.


Eco Fresh SE focused on the importance of ‘team’ for a start-up. They have found that this is a particular challenge for an early stage start-up, when there are so many uncertainties, so much risk, the team sometimes had different ideas about their model and often had other work to focus on. The shared how they have kept the team motivated, have maximized on the skills sets of their team and managed the challenge of communication and decision making.

Impact Hub Phnom Penh are incredibly proud of each team for their commitment, dedication and immense energy over the past year and look forward to continuing to support the teams as they impact Cambodia and beyond.

The EPIC Showcase was honored to receive insights from His Excellency Mr. Chek Lim (from the Ministry of Youth Education and Sport), Ms. Veena Reddy (USAID Cambodia’s Deputy Mission Director), Ms. Kate Heuisler (Chief of Party Development Innovations), Mr Ganesh Muren (CEO and co-founder of Saora Industries, which provides affordable, high impact, green technological solutions to marginalized communities) and Ms. Satoko Kono (President of the impact investment fund, Arun LLC).
