AngkorOne was established in 2008 with an ambitious social entrepreneurial mission to build a world-class mobile gaming and IT consulting firm with an all Khmer staff, and use the profits to improve Cambodia’s education system. Today AngkorOne is Cambodia’s leading mobile gaming firm. AngkorOne has invested nearly $1 million in support of the company’s mission and has the remarkable opportunity to showcase to the world that Khmers can compete globally and raise awareness for Cambodia’s education and social issues through our international mobile games. One such game is called Photo Champ, which takes the “spot the difference” genre to a whole new level of innovation, competition and social responsibility. The game will launch in early October of 2012 and every month, each player will have a chance to win 4 and 5-star hotel packages to explore the beauty of Cambodia. The gamers are empowered to make a difference in Cambodia by upgrading to the full version whereby a percentage of the profit will go towards education. AngkorOne is committed to developing truly high quality and innovative mobile games that are fun and addictive while promoting Cambodia’s rich culture, history and tourism.
In addition to the mobile games, AngkorOne offers world class IT solutions on a budget to clients in the United States, Malaysia and Cambodia. One project with a US client requires over 40 Photoshop editors to enhance thousands of photos daily. Another project is with a Malaysian auto-maker to build its automotive online portal.
Since 2008 AngkorOne has established key relationships in various sectors, including NGO’s, universities, youth groups and the media. In the NGO sector, AngkorOne partnered with the International Republican Institute (IRI) to design and maintain the home page of the IRI-produced Youth Leadership Challenge (YLC) TV show. The YLC home page included contestant profiles, viewing full episodes and special events, a moderated forum and polls. At universities, AngkorOne held over a dozen workshops to encourage and train students to use the Internet, email and social media. With youth groups, AngkorOne funded and participated in activities to promote creativity, innovations and social responsibility at various locations in Phnom Penh and other provinces . AngkorOne’s strongest relationship is with the media. AngkorOne.com, an online Khmer community, is currently the only Cambodian website that has a shared link partnership with the leading newspaper websites including Phnompenhpost.com, Kohsantepheap.com and voacambodia.com. AngkorOne also has a very close relationship with Cambodia’s #1 TV network CTN and has a partnership with its sister network CNC (24 hour news) to co-produce the only IT Weekly show in Cambodia. Every Friday at 11:30am and 5:30pm, an expected audience of over a million viewers will tune in to watch AngkorOne’s CEO Steven Path share the latest IT headlines and innovations from around the world and how it impacts Cambodia. The show also focuses on how to exploit social media and other popular technologies to improve their business and personal lives.
