We are pleased to announce the creation of our new American University of Phnom Penh Technology Center (ATC). The ATC will start operations in January 2021.
Inspired by the successful model of Israeli Technology incubators, the ATC will be a technology-focused ecosystem builder aiming to help start-ups form collaborative and strategic partnerships with established corporates and government agencies. It will nurture novice entrepreneurs at the earliest stage of technological innovation, helping them transform their ideas into commercial products and form productive business ventures in Cambodia and abroad.
The ATC’s priority will be the development of digital technology projects and initiatives that contribute towards an inclusive digital transformation in Cambodia and prepare Cambodia’s workforce for the Digital Economy.
The ATC will be part of the AUPP Center for Leadership and Professional Development (CLPD) and will occupy a brand new, state-of-the-art facility located on the sixth floor of the AUPP building.
The ATC will partner with leading technology companies and universities in Cambodia and other ASEAN countries, the US, China and Israel. An important collaboration agreement has been signed with Huawei (Cambodia) today. Other partnerships are currently under discussion and will be finalized in the coming months.
The ATC will be supported by an International Advisory Board (IAB) with world-class academic and business leaders. The IAB will be officially launched on October 1, 2020 and will be chaired by Prof. Guido Gianasso, CLPD President.
