About this event

Building a startup community is not a simple overnight task. It takes years, hard work, and community involvement.

Being a community builder isn’t an easy job yet everybody still wants to become one, especially in Vietnam.

Startup activities are a great start, but a real community will define your long-term prosperity.

First, let us first define what a community builder is. A community builder is a person or an organization proactively leverages their time and resources to support the development of a specific group of people sharing the same values. In our case, it’s a group of people who believe startups are key drivers of disruptive innovation that can change the world.

To help you learn more about how to build a strong startup community, this August, we are excited to introduce our special guest - Elliott Adams, Author of The Startup Mixtape to share with our #SGSaigon community about his experience in community builder and how to be a successful startup community builder!

Elliott Adams is a San Francisco-based startup mentor, author, and professor. He was CTO of CD Baby through its $22m acquisition, worked in government on technology policy and ecosystem development after Hurricane Katrina, and has been the Director of the TechStars Startup Next program, as well as an Entrepreneur in Residence for Techstars (Techstars is one of the Best Startup Accelerators in the world). He is currently the Director of the Summer Catalyst program at Babson College's SF campus (the top -ranked college for entrepreneurship education) and serves on the advisory board for South by Southwest Interactive.
