Panupong Tejapaibul

Tired of having to jump through hoops to get tickets for small scale shows, in August 2015 Panupong launched Ticketmelon, an online ticketing system that bridged a gap in Bangkok’s indie music scene. This year, Ticketmelon was the exclusive ticketer for sell-out concerts by the likes of Cigarettes After Sex and Crystal Castles. As boss of this small but hugely successful start-up, the young entrepreneur wants to change the negative connotation of work to make the office a place of inspiration and empowerment.
