Today at the first regional Digital Winners Asia startup event by Telenor Group, it was Thailand’s TakeMeTour that took top honors after competing with seven other leading startups from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand and Malaysia. Following the winning pitch, the team will return to their home market with 100,000 Norwegian Kroner in initial expansion funds, and a wealth of support, network and knowledge to expand their business into neighboring markets – the event’s overall theme.
The winning startup duo from TakeMeTour, Jinda-Apiraksa Amornched, CEO and co-founder, and Noppon Anukunwithaya, COO and co-founder, created the Bangkok-based company focused on providing consumer access to the largest collection of one-day tours in Thailand. They will use this experience to focus on growth in their own country, and they plan to expand into Myanmar starting with the expansion funds from Telenor Group.
“An event like Digital Winners Asia is a dream-come-true for startups like us. We started with the dtac Accelerate program and have advanced to this point to be able look at expansion into other markets. Then to have the caliber of speakers and their personal advice at the event, is priceless,” says Jinda-Apiraksa Amornched, CEO and co-founder of TakeMeTour.
