Fireside Chat

About this event

Hey guys, It's Startup Grind Ho Chi Minh,

Today the special guest will be Sakshi - she's an awesome woman with very impressive knowledge in HR and Community. 

We are so grateful what she will have a chat with us and talk about her stories :

- What encourages her to follow your passion and founded Startupoi,
- What it's like to move from a Corporate Executive to a startup founder?
- Vietnam is not her birthplace, so why Vietnam, and what are the advantages and challenges of building a global startup here?

At Startup Grind we value a few things:

  • Help others, before you help yourself
  • Give, don’t take
  • Make friends, not contacts

This is why we bring you a community of not just entrepreneurs but like-minded people so we can share, talk, learn, and get inspired from others because this might spark a great idea for you and a unicorn company one day. This is a fireside chat, it's casual and intimate, so bring your curious mind, your questions about purpose, about career, about startups, or anything else you may have. 

About Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Month

This month Startup Grind is celebrating DEI month, presented with SVB and supported by Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs. DEI stands for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; 31 days to emphasize the importance of diversity across our global startup ecosystem, and what it means to all of us. We are so excited to take this time to recognize and amplify the voices of leaders in our globally diverse communities, providing a platform for those that may not have been heard previously.

In addition to this event, you can also view Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Month events taking place across our global startup community here or register for our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit here.
