I don’t have much experiences about coding, creating an app, business, marketing or even lack of ideas about all these before I participated in Technovation. Technovation is a program for girls to learn to create an app in order to solve the problems appearance in the community. It is my first time to join Technovation. In the same way, I highly obtain benefits of participating in this program.
It is not easy at all to work on 12 weeks to learn to code, business model or marketing plan. Technovation allows teams of girls to create an app with an great idea to help the community or society. It took me about one night to decide to join Technovation because the first time I thought that it is very very difficult to create an app. I thought in myself and later on I decided to participate in Technovation because I want to try new things.
In my team, there were five people including me. Our team’s name is Five Infinities and our app is MEP Center. Mep Center is an app to let users who are suppliers ( fixer) and customers (service receiver) in mechanical, electricity and plumbing field communicate with each other. We help the suppliers who do not have enough works can find works to do and customers can find and get to know more suppliers easily.
We have created a lot of function to ensure the quality and to make sure our app is convenient to use. When I decided to try new things, there are many good results to me. If we just do or try the thing you already know, so you don’t get or learn anything. My team passed the semi final and have the opportunity to join National pitch. In the national pitch, we went on the stage and pitched our app to the judges and audience. My team felt a little nervous but later we felt confident. As a consequent, My team won the First place of National Pitch Technovation Cambodia, going along with prices.
I am very very happy about Technovation because my team and I could create an app to help our community and we are a part of Changing Cambodia. In this program, I am very thankful to the mentors, supporters and all the people who were helping us. In addition, I felt very proud of my team and hard teamwork for receive this achievement. The other thing is that I could learn about creating app, doing business, or marketing.
As a participant in Technovation and created an app, I positively believe that girls could code and create app just like boys. Finally, I encourage all the girls to believe in themself, try new things and do anything they like without thinking about gender.
These are the news that talked about our team.
