Borey Chum

Managing Director of LUMA System Co., Ltd.

Who are you, how/why did you start LUMA System?

  • I was born in Siem Reap, and I came to Phnom Penh to study tourism. However, after 3 months, I don’t love what I study and so I started working at a computer shop. After 2 years working at that computer shop, I went back to school but this time in the UK. In 2008, I started to reflect back on what I want to do with my life. I wanted to work on my idea but my company would not allow me to work on it then I left the company and I started my own company. 

What is LUMA System Co., Ltd?

  • LUMA System is looking to solve social complex problems in a city where we are living in, to become more sustainable and resilient to the unforeseeable problem which poses serious consequences to the city.

What are you trying to achieve (your mission), what are you doing, etc 

  • Building a framework and platform for sustainable city development and solving some certain problem such as Solid Waste and Plastic, Storm flood and WasteWater, Traffic Accident and Traffic Congestion, Urban Development and Environmental impact. 

How can youth get involved/ how can they help with your mission? 

  • Everyone can be part of our program to solve different city challenges and make our city sustainable and resilient. These can be done through volunteering, internship, and joining the team as part-time or full-time work.

What is your dream for Cambodia in 2030?

  • I want to use my skill to create a big impact on the whole community by building a sustainable and resilience Cambodia city via modern technological solution.
