The Thai Social Enterprise Office (TSEO) was established in 2010 under the Thai Health Promotion Foundation Act, as the executive authority to deliver the Social Enterprises Master Plan (2010–14). TSEO’s priority is to stimulate cooperation among social enterprises and develop their networks in Thailand. In addition, TSEO was designed to be in touch with all possible entrepreneurs who have a particular interest in social and environmental issues, and to inspire social responsibility.
This YY Cocktail will explore the history of social business in Thailand, its current ecosystem, and where it is headed. One AIT PhD candidate will display her findings on the impact of SB in Phetchaburi province, followed by a panel discussion which will bring in experts from public and private sector and academia to provide their input on what kind of potential can be achieved in the upcoming years.
