SET expands alliances to upskill entrepreneurs embracing students, startups and 
SMEs

BANGKOK, March 15, 2021 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) is teaming up 
with National Innovation Agency (NIA), Panyapiwat Institute of Management (PIM),
Thailand Management Association (TMA), and Expara Thailand to develop an
entrepreneurship curriculum by leveraging each organizations' expertise and
experience via digital media and "entrepreneurship class" activities. The move
aims to reach all target groups of the value chain inclusive of university
students, startups, and SMEs, expecting to draw over 30,000 enthusiasts to
access to resourceful entrepreneurial knowledge in 2021.

SET Senior Executive Vice President, Head of Sustainable Market Development 
Division Krisada Sektrakul said SET aims to promote sustainable business
operations in all dimensions of capital market industry specifically with
commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects. Business
competence is a key element toward sustainability. As such, SET continues to
focus on encouraging entrepreneurial knowledge, which has been part of the
fundamentals of quality growth for the economy and society, in line with our
vision 'To Make the Capital Market Work for Everyone'.

To optimize quality contents to cater to these specific target groups, more 
experts in this field are needed. SET has therefore joined hands through a
partnership with four organizations: National Innovation Agency (Public
Organization) to empower up-and-coming generation to understand more about
running startup business in the Startup Thailand League 2021 project; and
Panyapiwat Institute of Management (PIM) to nurture students' learning & skills
on startup, innovation, and accounting knowledge for business to shape and
sharpen entrepreneurs in the digital age. The other two partners are: Expara
Thailand, a specialist in startup incubation, to host educational activities and
produce learning materials for early-stage startups; and Thailand Management
Association (TMA) to launch an online seminar about digital marketing for SMEs
to penetrate and broaden their customer base.

"Over 5 years, there have been 50,000 participants gaining knowledge and 
experience from SET's unique entrepreneurship classroom. This year, SET expects
more than 30,000 people to access extensive and practical pool of knowledge via
all online and offline learning channels. This will be instrumental in enhancing
potential of Thai businesses, creating more opportunities, and driving Thailand
 towards sustainable growth," said Krisada.
