Description: Over decades, the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Thailand has been promoted and supported. Yet, the number of entrepreneurs who have created something new and solved the problem has not increased while the government attempts to find an easy way to identify entrepreneurs (low hanging fruit) which have become difficult to find. IDE Nodes and IDE Network, initiated by different universities, partners, and stakeholders across Thailand, believes that “there are no more mangoes to harvest, we need to grow the mango tree”. IDE Nodes, together, attempt to create IDE mindsets in people who, in turn, become entrepreneurs.

Grace Park – Co-Founder & President – DocDoc, Singapore

Selma Prodanovic – Founder & CEO – 1MillionStartups

Description: According to a Forbes article, fewer than 5% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women although women are awarded 57% of bachelor’s, 60% of master’s, 51% of doctor’s degrees and academic studies show that, at least in the industrialized world, there are no significant gender differences in motivation to lead. It raises the question if women should emulate men to break the glass ceiling. But this logic fails to account that humans are biased and male and female leaders are viewed differently. For example, experiments have shown that men are more likely to be judged based on potential, while women are more likely to be evaluated based on performance. What is the secret to become a female leader in a man’s world?
