GT12 - Anonymous Letter to the Host - What's wrong with the Vietnam Entrepreneurship Ecosystem?
2 days ago
In this week's episode I read through a list of positives and negatives about the Vietnam entrepreneurship ecosystem. This list was sent to me by someone who wished to remain anonymous due to potential conflicts with future business endeavors. I think it's pretty telling about the ecosystem that an objective opinion could be the cause of business difficulties. This is especially true when the fact is that the deficits in the ecosystem are fairly well known by those who have spent some time working with the community. Either way, I thought it was important to share this list and start some conversation around the topic. Each community builder has a different way of dealing with the negatives they encounter. I'm a believer in the Boulder Thesis myself. I think that the community can only grow stronger by increased by peer based learning and free transfer of knowledge between local networks. You can also increase the strength of the community by increasing the interactions between different local communities (ie bringing Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city entrepreneurs together for collaboration). If you are interested in the topics I shared in the podcast, or want to add your own thoughts - send me an email (email@example.com) or head over to the Facebook page (www.fb.com/GrowthTigers) to comment. Next week we'll continue with a series of speakers based in Ho Chi Minh City. Talk soon! Graphics provided by Duc M.
