Hi, I'm Monthida.
I'm a board member at Female Founders, an ambassador for Seedstars Singapore, and a supporter of the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards Program. I am a Thai national and Singapore permanent resident, and I sit on the board of leading biogas company Asia Biogas Thailand. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, walks in Singapore’s Botanic Gardens, and spending precious time with my three grown-up children.
