Shuyin Tang is a partner at Patamar Capital as well as the founder and CEO of the Beacon Fund.
Patamar Capital was one of the first impact investors in Southeast Asia and about ten years ago found an incredible opportunity to invest in companies to improve the livelihood of the emerging middle class through technology in the region.
Advancements in technology such as e-commerce, fintech, education,logistics and healthcare are driving the rising income of Vietnam’s population. Vietnam is already establishing itself as an emerging leader in the technology sector with household names such as Momo, Tiki, VNG Corporation and VN Pay. Shuyin believes now is the best time for Australians to do business in Vietnam.
