Entrepreneurship is very important and it’s my first Exploration in Liger Leadership Academy too. Before I didn’t like Entrepreneur and I hate making business. But now It changed me a lot. I learned so many things and I made many things that help to solve the problem and also help Cambodian people. In my exploration, there are 15 students and I have a teacher name, Keith. He a very nice teacher and also very handsome. He teaches me some main thing about Entrepreneur. What makes their product popular what make them have a lot of customers. What makes them succeed. We started to brainstorm the idea how we can make the product that can help Cambodian people. A lot of people have a different idea. and they go to think with the teacher. Finally, I got the idea my idea is very strange. I want to make the magic ruler.
In that ruler, there is a lot more thing. At the front of the ruler it has the pen and the back it has an eraser. ’’I want to make this ruler because of a lot of people that is poor they don’t have much money to buy a pen, ruler, and also eraser if we sell this to the poor people they can just buy it just one tool and they can have three tools in it”. I present to my teacher. And he said This is a very good idea actually but I have to know that in my product I have to buy three things to make once so if I sell it for a cheap prize. I didn’t get any profit back. But you did a very great job. Finally, I got my team and we started to brainstorm again. And our first product was a small cabinet from a 3D printer. So I need to study how to use it. It’s was very hard So I decide to make it from cardboard I And I have another product that already has a prototype called Pencil holder. For many many days, I and my team have an idea that we should change our product because it takes a lot of time to make one. So we decide again to make a keychain. And I make 10 of it. After that, we go to Impact hub at Phnom Penh. There are a lot of Entrepreneur that working there. We going to get some feedback about our product. and they didn’t buy my product but they have some feedback for us. We sold 1.25$ for one. They said You didn’t want to cut or sand the bamboo into shape because it can cut our hand when we hold it. So I and my team come back home and stop cutting it into another shape.
We made 15 to 20 of the new one. And we sold it for the same prize. For two to three day we go to the school called CIA First and we take our product to sell. My new product was sold out for 10 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so surprising. We got 70,000 real in our bag. And the student just comes and started to want to buy more. We went there for 2 hours and we came back with a happy face. When I come back my teacher Keith told us that we should sell it for 2$ and we decide it sell for 2$ and it also so cheap for them!!!!! They started to want to buy more of them. We got around 10 thousand real after this exploration. This is a good experience.
