Igniting innovation: Connecting Thailand’s startups globally

The Google for Entrepreneurs logo at one of HUBBA’s locations in Bangkok.

Editor’s note: This post comes from Amarit Charoenphan, CEO and co-founder of HUBBA, Thailand’s first and largest coworking space and community. Today, they’re officially joining the Google for Entrepreneurs partner network.


I started out as an entrepreneur in 2012, when Bangkok was affected by serious flooding. I needed somewhere to escape to. But I realized that the coffee shops were too full and lacked a sense of community. I was inspired to co-found HUBBA to create a place where people with great ideas can collaborate.

Later that year, we opened our doors to Thailand’s first coworking space in Ekkamai. Since then, we’ve grown from a single shared office space to become a tech ecosystem builder with three locations across Bangkok and more than 20,000 engaged members and alumni. Today, I’m proud to officially join the Google for Entrepreneurs global network and become Thailand’s first GFE network hub.

As the newest member of the Google for Entrepreneurs partner network, we’re excited to give even more Thai startups access to resources to help them scale and go global. In fact, as of today, our community will have access to more than 25 member co-working spaces and Google’s six Campuses. HUBBA members will also have opportunities to participate in programs Google runs for startups, such as Google Demo Day and Google for Entrepreneurs Exchange.

From our very first day as a collaborative space, HUBBA has been home to some of Thailand’s and the world’s most innovative tinkerers, creatives and doers. With Google for Entrepreneurs’ global network, we hope to help our tribe of Thai startups become even more successful.

WordPress Plugin: Create a Customized Login Display With The Login Designer

You’ve probably created custom WordPress login screen for at least some of your clients. It sure wasn’t precisely super-easy. With the free Login Designer, you’ll be able to do this much faster from now on.

Good Idea: Adjusting the Login Screen Via Theme Customizer

The unique thing about Rich Tabor’s new WordPress plugin Login Designer is the fact that it seamlessly ties in with the WordPress Theme Customizer. This way, customizing your login screen works the same way as it already did with the theme.

I would even go as far as saying that the Login Designer allows any tard to build a nice login screen. It’s that simple. So, what can you, as a professional, get out of the tool?

How to Get the Login Designer

Download the Login Designer for free on Rich Tabor’s website ThemeBeans. Visit the linked page, and click on Free Download in the top right. This opens an overlay where you can enter an email address that Rich will send a download link to.

Shortly after, you’ll receive the according email. It contains the download link. Clicking it starts the download of the 2.6 MB zip archive with the Login Designer inside. Remember the zip’s storage location, and log into your WordPress installation.

Once you’ve arrived in the backend, switch to install > plugins. There, click on upload plugin in the top left, then click select file. Now, open Explorer, Finder, or your file tool of choice, go to the storage location, and select the archive login-designer.zip. Back in the backend, click on install now and be patient. In a short time, WordPress declares “mission accomplished”, and offers to activate the plugin, which you confirm.

By now, the Login Designer has found its way into the WordPress
