OnTrack Education won judges’ hearts at Viking Pitch and earned Fast Track to Pitch Day of dtac accelerate batch 5

March 28, 2017 – The application deadline of March 31 for the dtac accelerate batch 5 is quickly approaching, and, like every year, dtac held Viking Pitch Clinic to give startups an opportunity to practice pitching in front of the judges and receive feedback from dtac accelerate alumni from batches 1-4. The winner was awarded to OnTrack Education, who received a fast track to Pitch Day. Mr. Piyanat Satcharattanachot is the CEO and Co-Founder of the education startup that offers performance tracker platform for students preparing to university admission, particularly in medicine and engineering.
The Viking Pitch Clinic kicked off with the enthusiasm of 51 startups who signed up for the event, held at Fuchsia Innovation Center at Muang Thai Life Insurance, a key partner of dtac accelerate. Each team had 30 seconds to pitch their idea on the stage, after which 15 teams were selected to the next round. The 15 finalists then received one-to-one coaching from dtac accelerate alumni who helped them improve their pitch decks before giving a 5-minute pitch, followed by a 5-minute Q&A from the judges in the afternoon.
Mr. Sompoat Chansomboon, Director of dtac accelerate, Total Access Communication PLC, said, “Most of this year’s startup ideas are around marketplaces for tourism, healthcare, beauty, medical, retail, e-commerce, photography, music, recreation activities, and LBGT community. Each team shared their passion and ideas to disrupt traditional ways of doing things through simple but effective solutions. The standard of this year’s participants are higher than ever, in terms of business models and pitching techniques that meet international standards. Today was a great starting for all the startups who also received valuable Q&A and feedback from the judges in both rounds. Good startups must think fast, act fast, and fix fast.
