YouAdMe to represent Cambodia at the World Fintech Fest in Singapore

Singaporean-owned YouAdMe that was launched in Cambodia has made it to the top 10 Asean SME finalists out of 514 submissions from 40 over countries for the Global Fintech Hackcelerator and Fintech Awards.
YouAdMe was the winner of the ASEAN Pitchfest 2018 in Cambodia.

The financial technology (fintech) awards at this year’s Singapore Fintech Festival, the world’s largest such festival, is organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

The app-based platform slated to launch in 2019 will be partnering Cambodia’s leading payment provider as its payment partner.

Participating brands in the pipeline include Cambodia’s most popular food and beverage chains as well as all retail outlets in Phnom Penh’s upcoming smart city retail centre.

Game changer of future retail

YouAdMe democratises the media and marketing world by creating a level playing field for enthusiastic youths to pit their talent and creativity alongside the big boys in the industry, with equal opportunity to be recognised and rewarded.
