The camp aimed to reach a number of objectives: 1) to create opportunities for innovative talents in colleges and universities from ASEAN, South Asian countries, and America, 2) to interchange knowledge on innovation, entrepreneurship and technical studies, 3) to expand the international vision and participation of global issues, 4) to inspire transnational innovative ideas from the youth from universities and colleges, and 5) to strengthen the connections of innovative talents in the ASEAN, South Asian countries, and America.
This year, only six students in Thailand were selected to participate in the bootcamp. Mr. Pitchayoot Sripimuang said that it was one of the most profound experiences of his life to attend this international event. He was immensely pleased and proud to receive the great opportunity to be a student representative of Thailand along with five other Thai students from Mahasarakham University, Khon Kaen University, Suranaree University of Technology, and Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University. At the camp, there was a total of 50 students from 7 countries: India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United States of America. During the 8-day boot camp, he stated that he learned a lot and had endless opportunities to gain more knowledge about business and build his team work skills. Along with his group members, they had to brainstorm ideas and strategies together to strengthen the business capacity of their start up product to present at the end of the camp. While working on this task, business professional moderators held classes and presented talks that helped them gain more skills that will help them as young entrepreneurs. In addition to the business-centered focus, the participants also engaged in cultural exchange by learning more about one another and their respective countries and built an innovative student network amongst themselves.
