Fourteen angel investors—members of the Mekong Angel Investment Network (MAIN)—will visit the capital early next month looking for promising startup companies to invest on.
Seven members of the angel network already visited Phnom Penh in June in a scouting mission that resulted in two investment decisions—BookMeBus (a local online transport company) and Cambodia Investors Club or CiC (a small- to medium-sized enterprise growth platform) both received investment.
