“Saigon Tech Startup Fest”, to be held in Ho Chi Minh City Saturday, will feature booths set up by companies, technology conferences, workshops, and a job fair.
Beside nearly 60 tech entrepreneurs, 20 renowned speakers including Eddie Thai (venture partner for 500 startups), Nguyen Phuong Anh (head of marketing, Google Vietnam), Tin Nguyen (founder Dreamplex Coworking Space), Jonas Eichhorst (CEO of Silicon Straits), and Mike Tran (founder/CEO of Ticketbox) have confirmed their participation.
