Ascend Vietnam Ventures is an early-stage venture capital fund empowering tech entrepreneurs in Vietnam to transform people’s lives everywhere positively.
AVV runs SHINE, an incubation program dedicated to supporting women founders of early-stage startups. Through 12 weeks of training & mentorship. The program aims at helping women founders overcome the many uncertainties they might face at the beginning of their startup journey and gain the clarity and confidence they need to move their businesses forward.
The SHINE program offers access to top-notch mentors to produce a Startup Playbook that outlines propositions and strategies for growth, hiring & fundraising. Hau Ly, a partner at Ascend Vietnam Ventures, reached out to me on LinkedIn and offered me to join the mentorship program.
The ten female founders who enrolled in the SHINE program wanted to learn the necessary skills to acquire promising talents in the future. As new founders, they also wanted to define their leadership style to lead and manage their existing employees successfully. Their ambition is to become thought leaders in their respective industries.
Help the founders produce a startup playbook that includes their hiring strategy and attracting and retaining the right talents in a great workplace culture through a series of workshops and multiple one-on-one sessions.
