Alibaba Thailand Netpreneur Training Program open for application



The Alibaba Netpreneur Training Thailand program provides local entrepreneurs and business leaders an opportunity to learn and explore how to harness digital technology to positively transform their businesses and the local economy.

Businesses need to adapt and remain competitive in today’s rapidly changing dynamic markets. Creating a strategy for expansion in the new digital economies can be challenging without the right guidance. As such, Alibaba Business School, in partnership with depa, NIA and Gobi Partners is offering the 10-day program in Alibaba’s headquarters in Hangzhou, China, for mission-driven, open minded entrepreneurs and leaders who are committed to building strong businesses for lasting success.

Alibaba’s journey from startup to international ecosystem supporting millions of consumers and merchants, and the digital transformations Alibaba’s ecosystem partners have recently gone through are applicable to many business owners in Thailand, as many face challenges similar to those Alibaba and its ecosystem partners encountered during its development journey.
