Local Startup Community Phandeeyar has partnered with Founder Institute and launched the world’s premier startup programs for startup founders, inspired entrepreneurs and tech savvy individuals to pursue their dreams to the next level.
Phandeeyar has always been a great supporter to the Myanmar startup scene, ever since 2014. Founder Institute, after two years of observation and silence came at a time even when there were many concerns with the US relationship with Myanmar. But all that has become history with recent sanctions lifted. Now together, both will be working together to help Myanmar Startups gear up at a pace.

A full house filled with warm welcome was gestured towards Founder Institute at their launch at the Phandeeyar Innovation lab’s office. Alongside were leading startups’ CEOs and founder struggles and inspiring Life-Hacks on their startup journeys.
“It was not an easy journey for me when I started. Now that we have supports from Phandeeyar and Founder Institute for the next wave of startups, I am glad to say it will be glowing moment coming up” commented in the last sentence of his speech titled “making the leap from Employee to Employer”.
Myanmar Startups scene has been growing a lot in these paced-up three years. Early startups community embraced the bloom of the scene with an approximate number of 20s in 2013–2014. Up to now, it has reached to its quarter thousand in numbers and appears to keeps growing and booming.
