The interest in startup and VC investment has started during my master degree study in Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management at Imperial College London. Right after the study, I joined Beacon VC’s investment team and has been working here for 3.5 years to invest in high potential startups and support existing portfolio companies to grow sustainably with the interests in fintech, blockchain and digital assets and proptech.
Beacon VC is a wholly-owned corporate venture capital fund of Kasikornbank PLC (SET: KBANK), a leading commercial bank in Thailand with the highest mobile penetration and largest SME base. With an initial fund of $30 million, Beacon VC focuses on strategic investments in early to growth-stage technology startups covering not only financial technology (fintech), but also consumer internet and enterprise technology. In 2022, Beacon VC expanded its fund size to $265 million.
