Inspired by the way technology can be a help to declutter everyday life, Langda Chea managed to find a way to create BookMeBus (CBN-KH000000257), a website that aggregates all of bus companies in Cambodia, all under one platform.
As a frequent traveler himself, he’s annoyed by the fact that it is hard to travel from the city to his hometown because of the lack of information on bus schedules; the need to check to different bus operators just to know which bus is operating, all the way to the overcharging on ticket fare.
This made Langda realized that there needed to be an order, especially if the same frustrating thing happens to foreign tourists visiting to his beloved country.
His idea was simple, but Langda admitted that the demand continues to grow and his homework was piling up to fill in the gaps.
“The most challenging part for me in managing the business is to find experts who share the same vision with you. It takes times and efforts to find them just like getting married,” he explained.
“It’s about stepping out of our comfort zones, especially with startups that have got no names yet.”
No wonder, when asked about what cause he cares the most in life, he mentioned about the need of convenience and the time efficiency on doing something important, which can only be done if simple, daily, mundane tasks are supported and solved.
