In a fitting finale to their first year on the Learn to Start program, Northbridge International School Cambodia Grade 9 showcased their projects at the Startup Studio networking night, attended by parents, faculty and members of the Phnom Penh business community.

The networking skills of our grade 9 students were on full display as they pitched their ideas and interacted with guests. 

 

Over the course of the year, the students have worked individually or in teams to either identify business opportunities in their chosen industry, engage in community-based projects or develop a marketable skill based on a personal interest.

 

The initial step in this process was for students to develop an understanding of the marketplace.  Through a combination of primary and secondary research, they deepened their knowledge of their market, both broadly in terms of industry trends and more narrowly in terms of the behaviour and needs of individual market participants.

 

With an understanding of the marketplace, students then sought to develop solutions in response to needs identified, with some of the most compelling ones being recognised with awards presented at the networking event:
