Suprinya or Gift as she goes by the nickname is a gift indeed. A teddy-hugger by trade she knows how to captivate people with her wits and charm. Born in Hat Yai in the south of Thailand and graduating in Economics from Chulalongkorn Univeristy she quickly applied her entrepreneurial savvy in the U.S. launching a string of Thai restaurants among other ventures. Prior to spreading Thai flavors throughout the U.S. she worked as the secretary to the advisor of former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, learning first-hand how the system works from the inside. Now free from red tape Gift is connecting back to the roots again and crafting a path for her life that blends her entrepreneurial skills with the purpose of making a positive difference in her country. She is achieving that by working for the KX Innovation Center, Chulalongkorn and Mahidol University to create synergies in order to build an eco-system that will build a new generation of startup entrepreneurs in a cross collaboration from different disciplines that drive innovation and enhance Thailand’s competitiveness. Outside that realm Gift runs the Innspire Bangkok to create an innovative guesthouse and travel-, community space with bangkokvanguards.
