About this event

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

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 fireside chat. They will share their insights about the ecosystems, and answer any burning questions from the audience.

1. Sabrina Benioudren - Startup Grind Beijing Director
