About Minh

minh-oi

Hi there. My name is Minh.

I’m a blogger that works full-time for Tech In Asia. Writing and learning about technology in Asia is my dream job. All of my articles on Tech In Asia are here.

I’ve been lucky enough, because of my work at Tech In Asia and various other organizations to travel around Asia, doing talks and meeting lots of interesting people.

I also also spend my time in several organizations, including the following:

- Startup.vn: an organization dedicated to fostering the startup scene in Vietnam through events and training programs

- BarcampSaigon: an open unconference

- TEDxMekong: the current licensee of TED Talks in Saigon

- Global Shapers: a non-profit organization under the World Economic Forum

- Starthub.vn: A non-profit initiative to build a database and central online location for the startup community in Vietnam

I love to play music (although I haven’t much lately). I play the violin in my spare time. Being on stage is something I love to do, so MC’ing, speaking, and acting are often things I love to do if I have enough time.
