Tiara Khanthong’s message is increasingly important in a globalized world where there is a real potential for innovative goods to strengthen bonds across borders to promote happiness for people and planet.
Tiara Ranee Scented Candles were developed thanks to the generous support of the Genius Academy under the 200 Days to Dream Project organized by Thailand’s Department of Industrial Promotion. The project aims to strengthen the capacity of talented Thai entrepreneurs to develop innovative products to transform Thailand into a value-based economy. The product was developed in March 2017 under the project and launched in August 2017. The initiative was blessed to have had the guidance of coaches in various professional fields, especially Mr. Sarran Youkongdee, founder of the SARRAN Brand.
