Vietnam Global Innovation

Accelerating access to Southeast Asia's hottest economy

Vietnam is one of the most dynamic emerging economies in Southeast Asia. Its robust economy is supported by strong domestic demand and an export-oriented manufacturing sector. It has a population of 100 million with 70% below the age of 35. It has an emerging middle class that stands at 13% and is expected to reach 26% within ten years.

A tech-savvy population coupled with a propensity to spend provides many opportunities and challenges to solve for tech startups expanding in the region.

A proud partner of Global Innovation Alliance for Vietnam, this program positions startups for success in Vietnam through mentorship, business matching, and support in navigating its business landscape.
