Entrepreneur meetup

Hey everyone,

I'm an entrepreneur that just landed in Saigon and I'm thinking I'd be nice to meet like-minded individuals who are going through the same thing. It be a great way to network and just talk and get to know fellow expats and locals. If interested, please reply to this thread and if there's enough interest we will move forward and plan something.

Cheers!

Hello,
I’m Australian and will be in Ho Chi Minh City from 2nd to 20th December 2017 visiting and browsing for business opportunities and possibly establishing over there or in between Australia and Vietnam.
I’d also be willing to join such meetings, therefore please count me in and kindly advise if any possibility of a group catch up during my trip over there.

Sincerely,
Anca

Ok, I'm interested as well.
I'll move to Vietnam definitly from January 2018.

Who's organizing the first meeting, when, where, meeting agenda?

Hi there ,

same same . from Australia . I am developing some products manufactured in Saigon for Global markets starting in Australia . Industrial Textile products .(Canvas )

The plan is to have all of the products requirements prepared in Vietnam including packaging etc .
So this is the IT component requirements as well . . I have been in and out of Vietnam so many times but id like investigate a 12 month Business visa to simplify the tasks and planning .

Does anyone have any suggestions please . It seem the fortunate ones are the employee sponsored individuals . My business is not a Vietnamese company

All comments welcome

Stephen

Hi Stephen,
This is Van, Viet-oz here, from Brisbane. I currently have a tiny Vietnam business with the office in Bình Thạnh District.
I don't really get all what you need just by reading your post but I might be able to help. May be you would want to come to see me in my office and we can have a chat.
Cheers
Van

Hi,

What are the news?

fmp10, don't you think there is enough interest on this topic?

When? January or February.

Where? Saigon.

Location? To be decided by the organizers.

The organizers? Up to fmp10 to coach on this question :)

Hello,

If this meeting people talk about since early July haven’t happened yet after so much interest from others, am wandering if the initiator is still interested, otherwise maybe someone else wishes to take the initiative?
I’ll be in Saigon from 3rd to 19th Dec then I may come again early Feb for couple of weeks.
Anyhow I’m curious to see where this is going and I’d be pleased to see all happening.
Sincerely,
Anca

It would be interesting, as it's already been pointed out, the OP was posted back in July, but fmp10 the original poster has only made the one post but yet to reply. So I'm not sure if he is even still atound?

Hello everyone,
If allowed, I have a suggestion/idea:
- please advise if any interest in having a coffee catch up on Saturday 9th Dec or Sunday 10th Dec, say 11 am and say hello to eachother.
There is a Starbucks coffee shop at the base of Ibis Saigon Airport Hotel and if you may find this appealing, please respond, otherwise I leave it up to you all.
If we were to meet, we may choose a name for this meeting and I’ll make sure to pass it onto the Starbucks staff for guiding you all to the same table. Curious to hear your thoughts with many thanks in advance,
P.S. - I’m a strong believer in doing things sooner rather than later :)

I was going to suggest that someone organise something... You can create an Event free of charge, this way it will reach all those interested.

Hi Anca,
Just be careful.   What you’ve put in your personal profile will unfortunately be the exact opposite to the environment you’ll experience here.


I wouldn’t touch anything here. The Multi Nationals are usually the only ones making the good money here , along with the local oligarchs.

Good luck though

Hi Anca,
Just be careful.   What you’ve put in your personal profile will unfortunately be the exact opposite to the environment you’ll experience here.

Is it really the opposite?  I read something in Anca11's profile that I found disturbing.  She says that investing with her offers "NO possibility of loss or failure."  Other than perhaps government bonds, how can this be?  In fact, I think in the US, investment firms must make some kind of statement about the possibility of losses.  How is this really different than the investment and real estate sharks in Vietnam who like to offer "no possibility of loss or failure."

Ok, thanks for your comment, before anything.
I understand those who may not come from my industry may easily think that way, however from my point of view an economist in the field with extensive corporate lending experience and knowing the cherry-picked projects after thoroughly assessing them, with all the security in place (security represents the birrower’s Assets which are ones of the best positioned in Sydney metro area easily transformed in cash if any default from the borrower’s side plus the way we structure the commercial contracts with all caveats followed by registered mortgages over such strong assets, results in no possibility of loss...that’s right!!!).
My profile mostly speaks to possible professional investors but I understand for others at the first sight may not make a lot of sense.
Hope now I might’ve covered a bit more and is a bit easier to grasp.
If any questions, happy to answer because we all come from different industries and the reason of this site is to interact and exchange opinion experiences and connect at personal and business level, so I can assure you there is NO intention to offend or otherwise dear friend, and jumping to such conclusions without having all the details may not be the best choice.
My acrivity is addressing to a certain market under very strict strong legislation and licenses, therefore not blaming anyone if not understanding everything in this particular field, that’s why I’m always happy to answer any questions if any, with many thanks

Hi Yogi,
Many thanks for your kind advice, I’ve taken it all in and may change it soon.
I’m always open to any suggestions with many thanks in advance.
Much appreciated indeed.
Sincerely,
Anca

Thanks for the replies.

I won't be in VN till Jan. 1st and be free only in the evenings. First week or last week in January would be fine for me.
If not, then Feb.

Hi Anca, Dec.9 or 10 is good for me, if anyone still wants to join maybe we can have it started. then plan the next one again soon to have new ones come and join also. to the admin if will allow this one, then may as well start it.
