Here's why you should pay attention: this year, hundreds of companies from a diverse range of industries will join Techsauce Global Summit 2017 - Thailand's largest international startup conference that has grown exponentially since its start. This year, passing the 6000 attendee mark also means 50x growth for Thailand's leading startup event - which started as a small gathering of just 120 people back in 2012.

Last year, Techsauce Summit 2016 proved that Thailand's enthusiasm for technology & innovation was not just limited to the startup sector, because it was well attended by SMEs and a variety of big enterprises all eager to get in on the latest trends in the tech industry.

This year, corporates are showing even more interest in Techsauce Global Summit with companies from new industries outside the financial & mobile sectors such as SCG (Construction), Ananda (UrbanTech/PropertyTech), PTT (EnergyTech), MuangThaiLife Insurance (InsurTech) and MitrPhol Sugar (BioTech) joining to sponsor and partner with the Summit - many of them having already set up their own CVCs and special programs to promote innovation. Even Yamaha Ventures (Automobile) is making an appearance. Tech is proving once again just how it permeates every industry, and how ultimately no industry can escape its impact.

Techsauce Global Summit will be organized on July 28-29, 2017 at Bangkok's Centara Grand Convention Centre. It will assemble thousands of attendees, many of them from leading corporates & enterprises in the same space for two days to experience the impact of tech & innovate together.
