Mentors needed for Vietnam’s startups

Mentors are needed to help young Vietnamese entrepreneurs grow their businesses, but connections are still modest, experts said.

Vietnam's start-up ecosystem has a lot of potential and can be a prime market for start-up investment, but many say the quality of start-up projects have not met the potential due to these firms' lack of market-oriented policies and development experience.

While experienced investors are capable of supporting the country's immature start-ups by providing experience or capital, a lack of proper connections between start-ups and big firms was blamed for stopping the country ecosystem from blooming.
