dtac accelerate pushes Thai startups towards Thailand 4.0

February 24, 2017 - Several news agencies believe that the past year was a golden year for startups, with the private sector pouring in support to the startup industry through a number of startup events and the establishment of innovation centers to help startups create new technology-based products and services, aiming to disrupt the traditional customer behavior. The government is also driving the country towards Thailand 4.0 or a value-based or innovation-driven economy, transforming traditional farming into smart farming, traditional SME’s into smart enterprises, and traditional services into high-value services.

Mr. Sompoat Chansomboon, Director, dtac accelerate, Total Access Communication PLC or dtac, said, “dtac accelerate was launched as a startup program in Thailand 5 years ago in 2012, and over time the program has grown into a world-class incubator, packed with startup curriculum and gurus, and has helped enhance the capabilities and ideas of Thai startups. dtac accelerate, the number one incubator in Thailand, has an interesting track record of raising funds, developing training courses, and producing much-admired startups at several startup events. We hope that the collaboration between the government and the private sector would bring new rising startups to the industry, which would help accelerate the country’s drive towards Thailand 4.0”a
