Thailand is known as the land of smiles- and not necessarily the land of innovation. Hopefully, thats about to change.
With the wave #fintech revolutionizing the banking industry globally, Thailand aims to position itself in the global market by supporting fintech startups. Global fintech startups are now being invited to apply for a 3-month acceleration program, based in Bangkok, in order to collaborate with one of the country’s biggest banks and contribute to financial innovation in ASEAN’s second largest economy.
Selected startups will receive dedicated mentorship from financial experts from across Bangkok Bank and Bualuang Ventures as well as strategic guidance from international venture firm and innovation provider Nest. They will be guided through a process that is designed to give startups the opportunity to secure a proof of-concept (POC) with the bank and pitch for investment by the end of the program.
