Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is an intensive educational/leadership session that brings together many young entrepreneurs from around the world and place them on a common platform to innovate and create new businesses by collaboration. The bootcamp is designed to groom your innovations and new ideas into startups. We provide the platform to interact with our mentors, successful entrepreneurs who are willing to hear what budding entrepreneurs are thinking of and guide them to the right path to making a successful startup.

GEB also brings together many like-minded entrepreneurs from different parts of the world. It is an incredible opportunity to be exposed to new cultures and perspectives, both entrepreneurial and otherwise. It is also an opportunity to exchange and share ideas with other participants. We believe that healthy competition is essential for learning, which is why we have designed Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp to also be a competition between teams that are divided during the bootcamp. GEB will make an environment where people from all backgrounds can create, innovate, collaborate and compete in a friendly atmosphere.

GEB is a place to learn from successful entrepreneurs who will share their experiences of success or more importantly their failures, share and exchange ideas with other like-minded attendees with diverse background, and it is also a place to compete with the same like-minded attendees in order to develop and improve oneself.

GEB employs innovative learning, interaction, and competition for improvement of an individual. We believe that anyone who is interested in entrepreneurship, is looking for the correct mentorship to guide oneself, or wants to meet other entrepreneurs, and possibly investors, from different parts of the world should consider applying to GEB.

Thailand

Bangkok, a city of contrast, hosts a greater number of guests than some other city on the planet and it will not take long to acknowledge why. Bangkok is a city that appears differently in relation to activity every step of the way; wonder about the shining sanctuaries, get a tuk-tuk along the clamoring Chinatown or take a long-tailed boat through floating markets. Sustenance is another Bangkok feature, from nearby dishes served at humble road slows down to haute food at sentimental housetop eateries. Extravagance shopping centers rival an ocean of boutiques and markets, where you can treat yourself without overspending. Unrestrained Luxury inns and shockingly cheap serviced apartments welcome you with the same renowned worldwide Thai neighborliness. Also, no visit to Bangkok would be finished without a look at its celebrated nightlife – from nightclubs to colorful shady areas of town, Bangkok never stops to stun.

Entrepreneurship in Thailand

Whenever people hear the word Thailand, they tend to think of the tuktuks of Bangkok, the gold-tinted architecture and its generous stretches of white beaches. However, Thailand is also home to many billion dollar companies like PTT, CP Group, and Indorama Ventures. Even the formula of the immensely popular energy drink Red Bull was made here.

Every year, Thailand’s median value of funding deals in startup ecosystem has been increasing exponentially; from US$60,000 in 2012 to US$1.1 million in 2016, according to TechinAsia. New startups like Fintech, an e-payment platform, received over US$27 million in funding in 2016 and is expected to become Asia’s e-payment giant in the coming years.

The tax policy is also favourable to new startups in Thailand. Startups, like those in Fintech, can receive up to five years of income tax exemption whereas venture capital firms are exempted for ten years.

Thailand’s rising position as an international platform for startups is good news for entrepreneurs and investors alike.

Thailand has myriad of untapped opportunities. Thailand’s vibrant and unique food culture, robust tourism industry, growing healthcare industry, and potential for intensive farming are all low hanging fruits in the business world which are ripe for the taking.

This is why GEB takes you to Thailand—to experience the next incubation hub in the world of business that is sure to be flooded with startups in the years to come.
