One month path but the epic Echelon Thailand 2014 Afterparty still remains strong in my memory – Amarit Charoenphan, CEO of Hubba Thailand & Co Organizer of ECHELON Thailand.

We all agreed that ECHELON Thailand 2014 was fantastic, but , one month after, something that became the talk of the Bangkok town was its After Party organized by e27 & Drinkentrepreneurs – Bangkok, monthly social networking events running in 35 cities around the globe & supporting sponsor of ECHELON Thailand. With full support from; INSPIRE VENTURE, Ysis, and KU DE TA, this night in Bangkok have become one of the memorable nights of the year for tech entrepreneurs in South East Asia.

This night I have learned that there have never been a better way of networking than doing it over a couple of drinks. It definitely loosens inhibitions and can also be a good conversation starter.

I also remember that this night, Drinkentrepreneurs had launched its new mobile app, “#Links – Tinder for business”, claimed to be one of the most powerful networking Mobile App in any contextual event. #Links iOS and Android.

Invested by 9pm by the Thailand best-in-class startups, executives, and investors, that’s when KU DE TA started the full-stream open bar! A short shout out by Tom Kim, Founding Partner of Inspire Ventures, gets the real party started… And all those who have been working hard never play harder than that night.

Woke up in the next morning, little hangover, but my shirt pocket were filled with all name cards of people I should meet. Thanks to #Links i had talked to all the Speakers & Investors of ECHELON and one of my friend told me that he closed a 100 000$ seed funding during this party ! Big thanks to e27,  Drinkentrepreneurs-Bangkok & #Links for this amazing night and a valuable business networking lesson, Cheers! 🙂
