As we told in our review of the Thai Startup Ecosystem
, Amarit is the guy
you have to know if you want to get into the scene.
When we found out he was involved in Techsauce
we could not resist the temptation of asking him some questions about the event and how can it help to entrepreneurs.

Techsauce 2016 – Speakers
What 3 advices would you give to a (young) startup attending Techsauce?
1 – Come prepared
Study the agenda, the speakers, the sessions and create a plan of what you want to achieve, what you are looking for and where you need to be. Prepare name cards, brochure, pitchdeck and Q&A questions. This will mean that you will utilize the conference opportunities fully and make the ticket price worthwhile as an investment into your business.
2 – Don’t just listen and learn, get up and ask!
Utilize the q&A sessions, the breaks between lunches, and reaching out to the speakers to get their advice and feedback on your product. A great, targeted advice of someone who is genuinely interested in them as much as you may have an impact rather than generic advice that you can hear anywhere.
3 – Be open to serendipity and making new friends
Going to a conference and not knowing anyone can be a intimidating but it is in these situations that a chance encounter could trigger new friendships, business opportunities, and funding. Get in the way of opportunities, talk to people, ask for introductions and referrals, and give before asking. You never know who you were talking to and what it could lead!
What success stories would you like to live at Techsauce?
We would like to see a Thai startup that either successfully raises a big funding or get the chance to work with major corporations and brands, creating Thailand’s 1st billion dollar company.
I believe that Thai startups have a high potential but have not realized their full potential due to a lack of supportive ecosystem and investors.
