Draper Startup House Launches in Ho Chi Minh City at KAIROS
Press Release - Draper Startup House Launches in Ho Chi Minh City at KAIROS (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – October 25, 2021) Draper Startup House has launched in Ho Chi Minh City—the 3rd largest city in Southeast Asia having over 8.9 million people—by signing a deal with KAIROS, one of the largest professional serviced office and coworking spaces in Ho Chi Minh City. The collaboration will see KAIROS Ham Nghi—located at the heart of downtown Ho Chi Minh City in District 1—and Draper Startup House working together, delivering services, training, and networking.  “Draper Startup House at KAIROS will build on the heritage of the HATCH! activities held in Ho Chi Minh City since 2013. Local startup founders now have an open door to the Draper Entrepreneur Network to get inspired, connected, and empowered,” Aaron Everhart, Country Lead for Draper Startup House in Vietnam, stated. Draper Entrepreneur Network and Draper Startup House Ventures are mechanisms to access global resources, including investment. Last week (12 October 2021), Draper Startup House Ventures launched a new fund for early-stage startups in Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, with Tim Draper, the US investor who placed early bets on Hotmail, Skype, Coinbase, as lead investor. “We are excited to have such a renowned name such as Draper to join our thriving ecosystem,” Hai Nguyen, CEO of KAIROS said. “The services of Draper Startup House and global network of Draper will complement our growing client list of startups and any others in HCMC as well,” Hai added. “We are proud to host Draper network members at all our locations in Ho Chi Minh City, and to be joining other Draper Startup House locations around the world.” The deal establishes one of the newest locations for the Draper Startup House network, which is now in 14 countries worldwide. Opening this month also were new Draper Startup House locations in Casablanca, Morocco and Vaszoly, Hungary. The Draper name is not new to Vietnam: Draper Fisher Jurvetson VinaCapital Fund (DFJV), established in 2006, was one of the first venture capital funds in the country. +++ About KAIROS With a mission to help ten thousand businesses thrive, KAIROS is one of the largest professional serviced office and coworking spaces in HCMC.
