Nat started her career at the Central Bank of Thailand where she became passionate about financial inclusion. She then moved to a commercial bank where she used her skills to provide hedging recommendations to SET50 and SME companies, before transitioning into venture capital investing. Nat gets to help amazing founders use technology to make the world better at MHV.
Outside of work, Nat is passionate about women’s empowerment.
