GIST Investors Vietnam

About GIST Investors Vietnam

Vietnam has become one of the most dynamic emerging economies in Southeast Asia over the past three decades. Key contributors include government policies and U.S. - Vietnamese bilateral cooperation on fostering growth in technology and innovation. Vietnam’s startup scene now boasts more than 3,000 startups, many of which seek to solve local problems through the use of technology.

The U.S. Department of State Global Innovations through Science and Technology (GIST) Initiative, together with implementation partner VentureWell and local partners Fablab Da Nang, Venture Management Consultant Group and Hatch! Ventures, is providing support for the Vietnam startup ecosystem by launching a series of GIST Investors Mobilization Training Programs (GIST Investors). The program will be offered in three cities:

    • Hanoi on March 25,
    • Da Nang on March 27, and
    • Ho Chi Minh City on March 29.

    At each program in this series, leading global investors will share best practices on the fundamentals of angel investing, conducting due diligence, managing portfolios, and negotiating term sheets and valuations. The overall program will equip participants with a sound knowledge base so they can continue to support the thriving Vietnamese entrepreneurial ecosystem.

    If you represent a formal investor network, venture capital firm, investment fund, or ecosystem stakeholder and are interested in participating in the GIST Investors program in Vietnam, contact Eli Velasquez at [email protected].
