The initiative is aimed at entrepreneurs of traditional and digital businesses in Thailand who wish to transform their operations and stay competitive in the digital era.
It is jointly organised by Alibaba Business School, the Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa), National Innovation Agency (NIA) and multinational venture capital firm Gobi Partners. Applications are open from now until March 8, 2020.
The ANT Thailand Programme made a successful debut in October last year, with 43 Thai entrepreneurs and business owners from a wide range of industries graduating from the course.
Many members of the first cohort have since demonstrated a strong passion for applying their newly acquired insights to drive positive change in their businesses and at the same time sharing this knowledge with communities at large – from leveraging live-streaming to build branding and customer base, inspiring other Thai SMEs to digitise their operations, enter the Chinese market via e-commerce and to organise regular e-commerce training for rural sellers.
The second Alibaba Netpreneur Training Thailand Programme will be held from May 10-20, 2020 at Alibaba's headquarters in Hangzhou, China.
Through lectures, discussions and site visits, the 10-day programme will allow participants to gain exposure to Alibaba's transformational journey from a small start-up to a digital ecosystem serving a global network of SMEs and consumers, as well as the mission, vision, value, strategy and culture that drive the company's growth.
Mission-driven, open-minded entrepreneurs and business owners with a digital aspiration are encouraged to apply. For more information on the program details including enrollment criteria, please visit Activity.Alibaba.com
