Burma’s first tech accelerator empowers new generation of startups
Monday, March 20, 2017
Buoyed by a thriving economy and a youthful population of over 52 million, Burma’s tech scene is ready to soar.
The country now has over 75 percent mobile penetration and tens of millions of new smartphones users eager for more.
Channeling this energy into empowering the country’s next generation of startups is Phandeeyar, a 6,000sq ft tech hub, whose name translates in Burmese as “creation place.”
Founded in 2014, the self-described “innovation lab” is the beating heart of Burma’s startup ecosystem, organizing regular hackathons and founder meetups.
