Formed in 2018 as a digital rebrand of The Phuket Gazette, one of Thailand’s largest and most well-known English language regional print newspapers, The Thaiger expanded beyond local Phuket news, going nationwide. Our Thai language offering was launched just a year later and has long since surpassed the readership of the English news, with local Thais coming to read about the latest news, sport, lottery, and entertainment.
Having acquired The Phuket Gazette, the new owners, Digitial Broker Ventures, wasted no time digitising the company – shifting everything online; a new website, Social Media presence, a YouTube channel, forum and mobile applications. And the old print newspaper was replaced with a daily email newsletter, sent straight to your inbox.
In 2021 we carried out our first external fund-raising round in which members of the audience were invited to invest in The Thaiger Pte. Ltd. for our Pre Series-A Round. We were able to successfully raise almost half a million US-Dollars from several Thaiger followers. This money was used to expand the company beyond just reporting the news and help us diversify into other areas, such as eCommerce, Daily Deals, Media Production and more. Exciting times lay ahead for The Thaiger Team!
