SAVVI CODE - DO GOOD

As entrepreneurs and leaders, we face difficult decisions everyday.  We do good for the simple reason that it brings us tangible benefits and the consequences of doing good are more favorable than not doing good.

STORY
[Our History]
2010-2020
  • Our story began in 2000.  After returning to the US from their trip with President Clinton on his historic visit to Vietnam in 2000, a group of Vietnamese American professionals in Silicon Valley established in 2001 a network for Viet tech entrepreneurs. It took on the name Vietnamese Silicon Valley Network (“VSVN”). 
  • In 2005, it opened its first chapter in Southern California and renamed the organization to “Vietnamese Strategic Ventures Network.”  We expanded quickly to Texas and partnered with an affiliate in France.  
  • 2012, we added the film industry to our focuses, seeing it as a catalyst to boost every other industry in Vietnam.

2020-Now
  • In 2023, after a break due to the Covid-19 pandemic, SAVVi came back with the TECx 2023 conference, which combined the Vietnamese tech, film, and music industries into one cohesive event dedicated to answering the question “Is Vietnam ready for private equity investment in these three pillars?” The answer was a resounding yes, motivating SAVVi to do everything we can to boost Vietnam’s tech, film, and music industries through our network of members around the world.
