Workshop on New Ventures and New Projects

HamsaHub Team contributed to an intensive workshop organised by the Mon State Chamber of Commerce and Industry on 15th and 16th October 2012. “New Ventures and New Projects” workshop was well attended by entrepreneurs, senior civil servants and young people wishing to start their own ventures.

The difference to this workshop compared to the workshop series conducted at other locations was that – two business spin outs emerged from the workshop. An eco-tourism business with a Mawlamyine focus and a linguistic skill development social enterprise were incubated throughout the two days period with follow up activities from both the chamber and HamsaHub.

HamsaHub will be allocating a full-time staff in November 2012 to focus on incubating new ventures in all the regions of Myanmar beyond the Yangon Bubble.
