A Regional Challenge

Collaborating with the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce

The IDE Center of the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce was created to carry on the work developed in collaboration with MIT’s Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program, to develop the entrepreneurial and innovation capabilities of Bangkok and Thailand. The IDE Center works with organizations across Thailand, Southeast Asia, and Asia to showcase successful innovators, and train and inspire the Region’s next generation of Change Makers. The IDE Center runs a range of activities, including training programs, an innovation accelerator, innovation competitions, and a major regional event showcasing Asia’s most capable innovators.
