About CEO
Wongnai Media Company Limited
Name Yod Chinsupakul
Date of birth 1983/1/29
Place of origin Bangkok, Thailand
Job background I worked for Reuters Software, Thailand, within 2004-2008 as a Technical Support Manager, managing a team of around 30 technical staff.
Education background - 2010 MBA, UCLA Anderson
- 2004 Bachelor Degree of Computer Engineering, Chulalongkorn University
Story about why you started your business

While I was doing my MBA at UCLA, I got a chance to study about tech startups in California. In my 2nd year as an MBA student, I co-founded a website in the US called trustbeat.com. However, it was a failure. At that time I didn't have a good team and didn't have any cash to fund the project. But I would like to do a tech startup again in Thailand.

I decided to find a team and I found another 3 friends, all computer engineers, who would become my cofounders for Wongnai.com. Then we chose to do Wongnai.com (""wongnai"" means ""insider"" in Thai) as a user-generated restaurant review site because we all love to eat and we think there's a need for everyone to find a good place to eat. Six months after we started coding the website, we cofounded the company and launched Wongnai.com.

Message to Japanese companies or investors

We already have a Japanese investor in Recruit and we feel that we learn a lot from Recruit as a company. We have an honest and fruitful relationship with Recruit and we feel that we like working with Japanese investors :)
