Bangkok Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Snapshot Survey 


Welcome to the Bangkok Ecosystem Snapshot Survey of the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), in partnership with Mastercard. We are working to understand the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Bangkok, Thailand to identify gaps and opportunities for the small and growing business sector.

Specific Objectives:
  1. Identify which organizations are working in the sector by organization type.
  2. Identify gaps in local ecosystems.
  3. Identify where and how organizations can work together, in order to boost entrepreneurship.
  4. Identify programs that are focused on supporting innovation.
Please complete the survey based on your organization's current activities or programs targeting entrepreneurs in Bangkok. There are approximately 30 questions, we expect that the survey should take 15 - 20 minutes to complete.
