What is VIISA?
The Vietnam Innovative Startups Accelerator (VIISA), co-founded by FPT Ventures and Dragon Capital, is an accelerator program and seed-stage fund that invests $6 million to build global-ready startups in Vietnam. With a fast-growing middle class, increasing digital penetration, high literacy rate & technical talent in Vietnam, we believe entrepreneurs can take advantage of these opportunities and change the world starting from Vietnam.
- Work closely with VIISA portfolio companies to develop high-level business/fundraising strategies and introduce other entrepreneurs and potential new deals;
- Communicate frequently with VIISA's Program Manager with informative knowledge about the companies' progress and development;
- Provide startups with access to any if not all of the following: (i) Potential Investment; (ii) Corporate Governance; (iii) Regulatory Comprehension; (iv) Technological Advancement.
