via PC Magazine — Vietnam start up culture didn’t exist 15 years ago, but now there are close to 14,000 IT businesses spanning hardware, software, and digital content.
The Vietnamese government sees the tech sector as the linchpin of the country’s economic growth, according to Mr. Long Lam, CEO of QuangTrung Software City (QTSC), Vietnam’s largest software park. It has heavily invested in infrastructure and passed economic policies encouraging both domestic and international entrepreneurs to start businesses.
For the moment, start-up culture is concentrated on the local market and apps that appeal to Vietnamese users to better their quality of life. Vietnam’s young app developers and entrepreneurs are motivated by the desire to help their country realize its cultural, economic, and technological potential.
