Hello Viewer,

The year of the Ox has finally arrived!

Did you know the animal is a rugged symbol of strength and endurance? They are strong, calm and steady, characteristics that every startup should have to survive the gruesome war for tech talent, as giants like Tencent, Bytedance, and Zoom expanding to Singapore.

Meanwhile, Southeast Asia remains the hot spot for business expansion, with Vietnam topping the list. Amongst startups and investors who’re interested in the market, there are 3 reasons why:

    1. Strong economic fundamentals and resilience against the COVID-19 pandemic
    2. Access to a pool of high quality (tech) talent
    3. A thriving tech ecosystem, supported by the National Digital Transformation Plan.

With the pandemic still ongoing and borders still closed, how do you gain access to talent pools, market opportunities and venture capital beyond your domestic market?

At Tech JDI, we want to support entrepreneurs, startups and corporate ventures to scale harder, better, faster, stronger. Just like we’ve done for all these companies over the past 5 years.

Instead, let’s give you what you opened this email to read.

Happy Lunar New Year!
