ANDE Bangkok Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Snapshot

Virtual Stakeholders' Roundtable Meeting

Wednesday, August 19th | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Bangkok, Thailand | Via Zoom



Join ANDE members and partners at the Stakeholders' Roundtable Meeting for our Bangkok Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Snapshot Through the support of the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) is collecting data for an upcoming entrepreneurial ecosystem snapshot that seeks to identify organizations that actively support entrepreneurship in Bangkok.

The purpose of this roundtable meeting is to present initial findings of the snapshot survey to key actors and get necessary input needed to develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem snapshot, as well as discuss key challenges, identify gaps, and explore how to use the ecosystem map to drive collaboration and build better support for entrepreneurs in Bangkok.

Previous Snapshot in East and Southeast Asia is Myanmar  - now it is Bangkok’s time to shine! All data will be collated into a free online resource and report that will serve as reference tools to strengthen the Bangkok Entrepreneurial ecosystem.




Don't miss the chance to appear on the Bangkok Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Snapshot! 
If your organization supports entrepreneurs and SGBs there, we would like to include your organization in the ecosystem snapshot!

Please kindly fill out the survey here,  which takes about 15 minutes. Please help us complete the survey before August 14th.
