What Our Alumni is Saying
The programme exceeded my expectations, thanks to MRANTI's exceptional support within their capabilities. Their collaboration with True Digital Park, part of one of Thailand's largest conglomerates, provided us with the opportunity to connect with potential partners, which significantly helped us progress with our plans to expand into Thailand. Expanding into new markets requires considerable effort, but with MRANTI's help, we have been able to make substantial strides quickly and smoothly.

GPS Fleet
GMP Indonesia
The programme was a good initiative and endeavor from the ministry/agency, as not only did it prepare me for our company’s market expansion into Thailand, but also helped solidify ties with the local agencies and authorities as well. The visit to the numerous stakeholders in Thailand was good, and the program coordination was seamless. I truly recommend this to be joined by any companies or start-ups that are looking at global market expansion.

Excellent and would love to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the GMP team! It provides us with great insights on what USA investors are looking at. It also gives us a great clarity on what we do and how we should improve.
MODENKOL
GMP USA
It’s been helpful for me to understand the US market and landscape better, how to position ourselves and also improve our pitch & pitch deck for US partners and VCs. The mentorship is the strongest aspect of the program. Our mentor has been so helpful and connected us to some renowned key opinion leaders who are very connected in our industry in the US, who love what we are doing at PurelyB and want to help us expand there. We would not have been able to meet these people or get connected in this way if it weren’t for the program.
