Amidst the Pavilion booth is Frosty Whale, led by its co-founder and CEO Paulina Bialek, a platform that aims to build a much closer connection between fans and influencers online by bringing the funds to them.

For Polina, FrostyWhale is currently on the lookout for potential investors to join on its goal
“We are looking for investors as we are raising our next funding round. But also, as we started in Thailand, this was our first market for this platform and our service. We are also looking for some media partners, influencer agencies, and potential partners connected to the entertainment gaming industry.
Throughout the summit, she is positive about Thailand as a market with huge growth potential and stressed that the startup will look to focus and expand here.
Next to FrostyWhale is its digital maritime relative, cshark with its Head of Design, Martyna Mrozek. A globally hailed software house with over 300 members has been offering solutions to help enterprises with digital transformation and start-ups translate ideas into products since 2014.

With its platform, online retailers can connect with wholesales, manufacturers, and suppliers of goods to stock their stores and make sales – strengthening the supply chain ecosystem and better customer relationship management practices.
Joining in at TSGS2022, droplo is looking to take the first step on its global expansion, by connecting with suppliers and partners from Asia that offers a ready-made product to sell in Europe. Thomas shares his hope,
“We are here because we've got a lot of questions from Thailand, from producers to manufacturers. At droplo, we have over 30 warehouses across Europe and could offer direct shipping and fulfillment from front to end for the customer. It’s a complex solution that we are trying to offer, and that’s why we are here”.
He also has expressed his excitement for droplo in the opportunity to connect, and exchange knowledge and experience with potential partners with expertise in e-commerce and looks forward to cooperating with some of the companies here from Thailand after the conclusion of the event.
Lastly, leading the Poland Pavilion, Robert Bak from Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH), represents Poland’s ingenuity as an innovative country with new technologies and the biggest startup scene in Central Eastern Europe. Most recently, the country was voted the seven friendliest country for startups in the world, as Bak stated.
“In Thailand, not many people know about this yet, so we try to spread the word. We want Thai people to be aware that companies from Poland are very innovative, also at a competitive price. And that's important nowadays. So yes, this is the idea why we are here”
With the post-pandemic recovery commencing and the world’s tech scene on its way toward full-speed throttle comeback, he invited Thai investors, potential partners, and others who desire to explore and connect with the Poland Tech scene to enquire through PAIH’s Bangkok Office.
