In Vietnam

We uplift people and economies around the world through entrepreneurship.

500 Startups Vietnam is a US$14 million fund aiming to make ~80 investments into Vietnam-connected startups, i.e., startups built by Vietnamese talent and/or targeting the Vietnam market. As of the end of September 2020, 500 Startups Vietnam has invested in ~70 companies in various verticals including E-commerce, FinTech, EdTech, AdTech, Healthcare, etc.

We are also helping to define best practices for early-stage startups in Vietnam. Specifically, we want to train Vietnamese angel investors about tech startup investment, be a guide for regional tech investors about the Vietnam opportunities, and provide resources on startup practices for founders. We also aim to advocate for a more streamlined legal framework for startups and help Vietnamese corporations and SMEs partner with or invest in startups and innovation.
