How Thailand’s new sprawling digital park will accelerate its startup dreams

Thailand’s startup scene has seen exponential growth, from a measly three funded startups in 2012 to more than 90 funded startups in 2017, with over US$280 million dollars in raised funds. As part of ‘Thailand 4.0’ — all-encompassing roadmap designed to transform the nation into a global hub for digital innovation, — major Thai telco True Corporation has announced the launch of True Digital Park by the fourth quarter of 2018. The park will have 1,000 workstations in what will be Thailand’s largest co-working space, and more than 3,000 square meters in cutting-edge labs and experience centers. It is also expected to host the country’s first Government Digital One-Stop-Service center, providing government-related support to startup and corporate tenants. The park aims to be a one-stop location for international needs with centers aimed at supporting foreign companies and dedicated space. Apart from housing Thai startup talents, True Digital Park will also host several international companies, such as Taiwan Startup Stadium (TSS), a government-backed program that helps Taiwanese startups to go global.
