The event was organised by Entrepreneur Advisors, a collaboration comprising Kingsford Securities, a Thai securities company, To Exit (2Ext), a full-service startup consulting firm, and Kudun and Partners (KAP), a fast-growing law firm.
Several startup companies from various industries ranging from food tech, health tech, insurance tech to retail tech attended the event.
The participants had a chance to hear from some of the most accomplished movers and shakers in Thailand’s startup ecosystem, including Ezra Don Harinsut, the CEO and co-founder of Omise, Woranun Thaworanun, managing director and chief of investment banking from Kingsford Securities, Nicky Nattanuch, managing director of 2Ext, and Kongkoch Yongsavasdikul, partner at Kudun and Partners.
The seminar focused on “secret recipes” and key factors in creating a successful startup, as well as the common obstacles faced by startups, such as seeking funds and often-overlooked legal issues ranging from relations between the shareholders, protecting intellectual property rights, forms of contracts, employment-related compliance to maintaining corporate documents.
Following the success of the seminar, Entrepreneur Advisors said they would be launching an “Entrepreneur Advisory Centre”, a one-stop service centre offering free initial consultations to help startups that may be facing challenges in their startup journey or to provide guidance on how to move their business forward. In contrast to the other consultancy providers, startups can share their concerns first, allowing the team to diagnose and provide tailor-made advice to them before they meet for an exclusive one-on-one session.
The unique collaboration will provide a holistic one-stop advisory service to startups in Thailand covering not only legal issues but also advice on funding opportunities, business matching assistance, and the overall planning for an effective startup lifecycle to help them succeed, the advisers said.
