Seekster (Property and Urban Tech) and Ricult (Agriculture Tech) won the Thailand Top Tech Entrepreneur Under 35 Awards. This is a significant early milestone and award-wining success at a national level for the new batch of start-ups from the dtac accelerate program.
“It is a great honour that start-ups from the dtac accelerate batch 5 have won awards from a national start-up platform ‘Start-up Thailand 2017’. Each of the award-winning teams has unique identity and strong commitment in creating a successful business. Tixget is a travel tech start-up that provides travellers with an enhanced travel experience by offering special priced tickets to various tourist destinations, such as theme parks, water parks, and museums from around the world. Seekster understands the problems and needs of modern society and offers cleaning and repair services for homes, offices, and condos. Ricult is a social enterprise that uses machine learning and satellite images to help Thai farmers improve agricultural productivity and quality as well as provide access to funding sources. These 3 start-ups are part of the dtac accelerate family, seen as new economic warriors who will contribute to the country’s drive towards Thailand 4.0,” said Mr. Sompoat Chansomboon, Director of dtac accelerate.
