Startup entrepreneurs, especially those without a lot of money, need a community of business owners, professionals, and executives who’ll provide guidance and lend support of various kinds.

A mix of activities, workshops, conferences and a job fair are planned for the event, the organizers said, along with talks by representatives from Google, Microsoft, and Uber sharing interesting startup related topics.

Specific guest speakers include, Do Anh Minh, communications director of Vertex Ventures, Eddie Thai, investment partner of 500 start-ups in Vietnam, Do Son Duong cofounder of TOONG and Nguyen Phuong Anh, head of marketing Google Vietnam.
