About this event

Zoom on the Ho Chi Minh City Startup Ecosystem

Each startup ecosystem is unique – offering opportunities as well as challenges for entrepreneurs.

On our road to explore ecosystems in the APAC region, we bring our attention to Ho Chi Minh City this time around.

This event is a cross-collaboration between Startup Grind Ho Chi Minh and Startup Grind Beijing. We are coming together to propose an insightful perspective on our respective ecosystems from our Community Builders' point of view. We partnered with Founders Lair, who supported us with extensive research and invaluable data.

In this online event, we will show you who to know and where to go when venturing out in Vietnam’s most active technology hub - Ho Chi Minh City

Firstly, we'll walk you through a general introduction of the Ho Chi Minh startup ecosystem, by exploring the following:

1. Introducing all crucial players from a macro perspective

2. Diving into special case studies to help you understand the ecosystem’s uniqueness

3. Showing you heroes to tap into for a smooth entrepreneurial start

A comparison between the two Asian hubs - Beijing and Ho Chi Minh, will then be made by local experts during a panel discussion. They will share their insights about the ecosystems, and answer any burning questions from the audience.

The APAC region is rich in technological hubs, and this event is catered for all the curious minds out there interested in learning about the similarities and differences of two diverse startup ecosystems in the region.

Make sure to tune in to learn and have fun!
