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.
