About the Speaker: Nuttaphong Jaruwannaphong, Thailand Social Enterprise Office (TSEO), Former Director

Trained as an architect and planner by profession. After graduation from Norway on Urban Ecological Planning, he has been working as the so-called ‘Social Architect’ since then on various roles both in public and private sector. Before joining the Thai Social Enterprise Office as the director in 2012, he has spent 3 years as a Project Lead of the collaboration project between Thailand and Denmark on urban environment and the remaining 4 years working as a Director of the Community Division and strategic advisor for the Thai Health Promotion Foundation—the government agency to promote health and wellbeing. During the short interval period between the works for government, he also worked as a General Manager for the real estate company aiming to be the first social enterprise of Thailand on housing & city development. He was also an initiator of many national initiatives and strategic institutions such as The National Progress Index, The Urban Design and Development Centre [UDDC], The Social Innovation Foundation, The Future Innovative Thailand Institute [FIT] etc. 

About Thai Social Enterprise Office (TSEO) 

Thai Social Enterprise Office (TSEO) is the government agency created to foster the social enterprise promotion works in Thailand. TSEO was established in 2010, under the Thai Health Promotion Foundation Act, appointed as the executive authority and the national focal point for the National Social Enterprises Master Plan (2010–14). TSEO’s priority is to create the enabling environment and policies needed for creating social entrepreneurship culture in Thai society. In addition, TSEO was designed to be working closely with entrepreneurs and organisations which have particular interest in social and environmental issues and help facilitate them to be a scalable social enterprise for creating social impact via the incubation system and social investment market.
