SBI Pitching Night Headline scaled

On 28 February 2023, the concluding event of Build4People Sustainable Building Incubator took place at Impact Hub Phnom Penh. In the course of the pitching night, five teams of young aspiring entrepreneurs presented their exciting business ideas in the field of sustainable building. In the end, the winner was AquaBuild – a startup working on making building materials more sustainable and environmentally friendly from water hyacinths to eliminate waste and limit water pollution, especially in the Tonle Sap Lake area. The Build4People Team would like to take this moment to thank everyone for attending the Build4People Sustainable Building Incubator Pitch Night, both online and in person. We are grateful for the support. It was among the biggest crowds in the history of Impact Hub Phnom Penh space. Furthermore, Build4People would like to thank the honorable judges, Mr. Nop Sokhai, Mr. Chansan Hun, Michael Waibel, and Ms. Leakhena Setha.
