National Innovation Agency (NIA)
The National Innovation Agency (Public Organization) (NIA) was assigned by the Ministry of Science and Technology to spearhead the startup business development and promotion project, as part of a goal to make Thailand a hub of startup business development and innovation.
Inspired by progressive advancement of innovation, Thai startup entrepreneurs were invited to come together to raise awareness of startup development and be equipped with greater potential and competitiveness that would propel the expansion of business operations as well as the existence of emerging markets. As the startup business was poised to make a giant leap, Thailand’s economy was expected to achieve a steady and sustainable growth in the near future.
In 2016, the NIA successfully advanced its innovation development plans by creating innovation potential, particularly for the economic and social sectors.
