Khmerload; a Cambodian success story

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Oct 13, 2017 12:07 pm

Cambodian viral site Khmerload has new plans for a BuzzFeed-like digital empire across Southeast Asia
In Vichet launched Khmerload while he was still a PhD student. Now, with Silicon Valley backing, he’s added new editions in Myanmar and Vietnam and is looking at several more locations in South and Southeast Asia.
By Holly Robertson Oct. 10, 2017,

When I met with Khmerload founder In Vichet recently, his wildly popular website was leading with stories typical of its entertainment-driven coverage: Two local pop singers have been spotted wearing the same outfits; a feature on the family of a well-known Cambodian business tycoon; and, with more than 7,500 shares, a series of photographs that emerged of young, female stars in skimpy bikinis.

While Khmerload publishes more than just gossip and titillation, stories in that vein remain the backbone of what has been hailed Cambodia’s most successful digital startup, after Khmerload received a $200,000 investment from 500 Startups earlier this year...

Damn. That's hard-hitting news. Always hard to top a "Woman marries pet vampire dog"story, but this one looks like a new beauty treatment not to be missed.

$5m in Series A round, largest in Cambodian startup history
Groupin sets new fundraising record in Cambodia’s startup history
By Zhixin Tan Tue Mar 19 2019
Cambodia-based tech company Groupin raised a US$5 million Series A funding round from Belt Road Capital Management (BRCM), marking the largest funding round in history raised by a Cambodian tech startup to date.

Co-founded by the three brothers and one sister, Groupin is the holding company of e-commerce startup Little Fashion and digital media startups Mediaload, which operates Khmerload in Cambodia and Myanmarload in Myanmar.

Launched as an informal Facebook retailer in late 2010, Little Fashion was one of Cambodia’s first e-commerce startups. Mediaload provides content on buzz-worthy topics with over 8 million monthly readers. It had received US$200,000 in seed funding from 500 Startups in 2017.

I can't imagine what interest the Chinese government could possibly have in these online social-space/media companies
