Mr. Kridsada Chutinaton (MUIC Class of 2006)
Though he graduated with a Computer Science degree in 2005, Mr. Kridsada Chutinaton showed a keen interest in business, starting many enterprises including those related to online advertising and software development. He learned from his experience that accounting system is very important to start-ups. This is the main reason why he started his company FlowAccount with his brother in 2014. FlowAccount.com is an easy-to-use cloud accounting solution designed specifically for Thai small businesses (SME). It helps small business owners with invoicing, expense tracking, payroll and reporting. FlowAccount won in the AIS StartUp 2015 competition, ultimately receiving THB 1 million from AIS and US$2,000 from Samsung Asia. The company was also selected to be among the Top 10 Startups in the Echelon Asia Summit 2015. Two years later, the company received a funding of US$1.15 million from top investors that include SBI Investment (one of the largest fintech VC in Asia), KBank Beacon Venture Capital, Golden Gate Venture, and 500 TukTuks. Mr. Kridsada was recently selected as one of the 100 Faces of Thailand’s Innovation Inspirers (No. 61, “Online Business Person”) and was featured in its book counterpart entitled “100 Faces of Thailand’s Innovation Inspirers” published by Thailand’s National Innovation Agency.
