LaunchSource has been selected to represent the United States at the Global Entrepreneurship Congress Startup Competition in Bangkok, Thailand.

Over the past eight years, the Global Entrepreneurship Congress has grown into a premier annual gathering of startup champions from 170 nations dedicated to building and strengthening entrepreneurial ecosystems. During the GEC, entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, thought leaders and policymakers work together to help new firms start and scale. GEC+ fills a need for more in-depth collaboration on key issues emerging from the GEC.

GEC+ Bangkok will take place on September 21-24, 2017, as part of Digital Thailand Big Bang 2017, at the IMPACT Exhibition Convention Center, where entrepreneurs and support organizations will gather for four days to participate in 50+ events that bridge the knowledge of digital innovators, new business support programs, government policies and the media.

LaunchSource will be represented by CEO and Co-founder Sasanka Atapattu, and will be competing with 15 startups from around the world in the Global Digital Transformation Competition.
