Apinara “Prang” Srikarn­chana

Co-founder, U Drink I Drive

Prestige (Thailand) - - THE VANGUARDS 40 UNDER 40 -

The el­dest of three daugh­ters and an heir to the Asia In­sur­ance em­pire, Apinara “Prang” Srikarn­chana is de­ter­mined to make some­thing of her own. It was this spark to af­fect pos­i­tive change in the world that led her and friends to co-found U Drink I Drive, a ser­vice that matches po­ten­tially drunk driv­ers with safe rides home. Since launch­ing four years ago, the busi­ness now gets as many as 3,000 clients each month and has earned her sev­eral speak­ing en­gage­ments. The young en­tre­pre­neur also finds time in her busy sched­ule to teach a startup course at sev­eral uni­ver­si­ties in Bangkok.
