Welcome to NUM SISU

The NUM Social Innovation Lab serves as both a space for seminars and interactive workshops on topics related to social innovation and entrepreneurship and also as an incubator to help develop and launch new social ventures. While the primary target will be university students in Cambodia, the NUM Social Innovation Lab will also be open to the wider social enterprise community. A maker space will also be available within the Social Innovation Lab so that students and outside community members can work to develop physical prototypes via the use of 3D printers. The NUM Social Innovation Lab will also serve as the main training venue for the National Business Model Competition which is an annual entrepreneurship competition open to all university students in Cambodia and focusing on startup ideas related to the following 5 sectors: Technology, Medical / Health Care, Education, Agriculture and General Business.
