dtac Accelerate launches Global Expansion Track 

Global Expansion Track is the latest programme to be introduced by dtac Accelerate with the aim of widening opportunities for start-up companies to scale up to a global level. 
The programme will leverage Telenor Group’s global digital capability.
 Sompoat Chansomboon, director of dtac accelerate, said that the startup ecosystem in Thailand has grown by more than 100 times, worth US$236 million in the last year.
“ Some 70- 75 per cent of startups in the dtac accelerate programme have constantly received funds ranging from |seed funding to Series A-level funding. Surely, this shows the success of dtac Accelerate,” Sompoat said. 
“However, in order to push the Thai startup ecosystem to the next levels: from Series A to Series B and to the ultimate Series C, it truly is a challenge for everyone since less than 5 per cent of Thai startups can reach those levels. We really need more resources, investments, and management capabilities in order to leap to the high levels. Thus, we all have to involve in driving Thai startups to the global stage.”dtac accelerate is pleased to announce that T2P is the first Thai start-up selected to participate in the Global Expansion Track program. T2P is a Fin Tech startup that possesses key strength of being a solution provider for building and maintaining corporate client base.
