About us

How we work

At AngkorHUB, we have two passions: being productive, and being positive. And as you’ll see when you visit us, we’ve found the ideal way to integrate the two.

As our name suggests, we are a coworking and coliving space where you’ll meet, work alongside, and share a lunch table with inspiring freelancers, location independent workers, and entrepreneurs from across the globe. Here, you’ll be sure to get advice, network, and widen your opportunities. That’s the productive part.

 

But beyond all that, we also house a social innovation center which is dedicated to the sustainable growth and development of Cambodia. By providing guidance and support and bringing together mentors from both the local area and our extended network of friends and supporters, we empower the local people to challenge and overturn the status quo. That’s the positive part.

Our social component

In a country were the living wage is set to 177 USD / month, while a lot of people earn less than that, we believe we can create impact by empowering individuals who cannot afford to ditch their jobs to become independent. Just a little push and some people ready to give advice and share their contacts.

For these reasons we run workshops, projects, as well as training and incubation programs with other organizations and individuals.  We network with social-enterprises and NGOs to stop re-inventing the wheel and start working together on a cause rather than focusing on the structure.

As a result of this collaboration, we have developed incubation and social innovation opportunities, programs such as the Digital Nomad Mentorship Program and The Coworking Exchange, as well as platforms such as Connect, which aims to the connection of people with causes through resource sharing.

A vibrant community

Conveniently located in world famous Siem Reap, just minutes walking from downtown and a bicycle or tuk tuk ride away from the beautiful Angkor Wat Temple, at AngkorHUB we hold a weekly pop-up bar, spontaneous movie nights, educational lectures and group vocational tutorials.
