DjoannFal, CEO and founder of GetLinks, said “Asia’s tech industry is entering into its golden age, startups, corporates and governments want to get into tech. But with this growth comes massive challenges for startups to build the right team due to limited talent pool and lack of quality supply channels. We aim to bring efficiency to this tech hiring market by providing a quality tech talent pipeline at an affordable price.” 

To facilitate its foray into Vietnam, GetLinks will co-organize the Saigon Tech Startup Fest
 for startups at the Independence Palace on March 12, expecting over 3,000 tech attendees.
