The ASEAN Post
“Ho Chi Minh City is the third ASEAN city to join the GIA network after Jakarta and Bangkok. The eight other cities in the network are Beijing, Shanghai and Suzhou (China), Berlin and Munich (Germany), San Francisco (United States), Tokyo (Japan) and Paris (France).
As part of the MoU signed between Enterprise Singapore, Singaporean venture fund Quest Ventures and the Vietnam government-linked Saigon Innovation Hub, the three partners will organise curated programmes to introduce Singapore start-ups to the innovation ecosystem in Ho Chi Minh City and connect them to partners, investors and customers in Vietnam. This will help Singapore start-ups set up, test and commercialise their solutions; form business partnerships in HCMC and Vietnam; and support Vietnamese start-ups to set up in Singapore.”
