What is Mekong Innovative Startup Tourism (MIST)?

Mekong Innovative Startup Tourism (MIST) aims to support innovative new travel & tourism-related ventures in the developing destinations and source markets of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam.  MIST will mentor new ventures, provide support and guidance, and match them with suitable investors.
