Tatler names 25 Thais among its Leaders of Tomorrow

Talter, the globally renowned Conde Nast publication, has named 25 Thais to its list of 300 Leaders of Tomorrow including entrepreneurs, innovators, rights activists, performers and athletes among the corps of changemakers honored by the magazine and website.

“Every year, the Gen.T List recognizes individuals who are making waves across Asia.
These honorees, whom we call the Leaders of Tomorrow, are chosen for their recent achievements and positive impact in various categories,” said Tatler.

Twenty-five individuals from Thailand are featured in the annual Gen.T List this year, representing some of the most promising and impactful young leaders from the country. From upcycling plastic waste into useful materials to setting world records in their sport, each honoree is making an impact their own way and inspiring others to do the same.  Among them is a unicorn founder, a talented rapper who has performed at Coachella and a trans rights advocate.

Yod Chinsupakul is the unicorn founder. His LINE Man messaging app has revolutionized food delivery in the Kingdom with more than a million restaurants in 77 provinces on its roster. His investors include Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC, BRV Capital Management and Taiwan Mobile.

Danupha Kanateerakul, a rapper more popularly known as Milli, mixed food with music to make her mark. The 20-year-old Thai performer, dubbed “the progressive voice of Thai music” by Tatler, capped her 2022 set at Coachella by eating mango and sticky rice, a signature Thai dish, on stage. “Outspoken on social issues, Milli raps in multiple languages, often addressing traditionally taboo topics,” the magazine said.

Natthineethiti Phinyapincha is championing the rights of transgender people in the workplace. Not with slogans, but with actions. “Coming from a public relations background, she launched TransTalents Consulting Group to provide companies with diversity, equity and inclusion consultation, training, collaboration and professional leadership advocacy,” Tatler wrote.

Ponglada “Bell” Paniangwet has succeeded in connecting rural farmers with city diners. Her company Freshket gets fresh produce from far-flung farms to the tables of Bangkok, raising rural incomes and providing urban eaters with clean, quality produce. And earning her firm millions in investment.

Others on the list include world-renowned woman golfer Atthaya Thitikul, industrialist Yashovardhan Lohia of Indorama Group, artist Yozanun Wutigonsombutkul, and digital healthcare hub creator Raya Chantaramungkorn.
