We see a world full of fast-paced changes, and trends in these changes across many dimensions including technology, innovation, labor and investment. It is our firm belief that Thailand will achieve new levels of development through incorporation of innovation as a driving force of business, which stands to better Thailand’s competitive edge. This is well aligned with government policy which calls for greater economic structure founded on new forms of business operation, where these new operators or startup groups are of importance, as it is startups which act as the foundations of national innovation. At the heart of it all, the creation of New Economic Warriors in older traditional as well as newer industries are the quickly approaching future of Thailand.

As a leading industry, who accepts our social responsibilities with pride, it is with a genuine desire to help develop the capabilities and potential of Thai SME’s and startups that we have created the “Allianz Ayudhya Activator” program, Thailand’s first startup InsurTech incubator program. The program aims to better equip businesses for operations in three promising sectors, namely, HealthTech, InsurTech, and FinTech.
