Welcome to Vietnam, the geographical gateway to the ASEAN region. In particular, welcome to the Kiwi Connection Tech Hub at Quang Trung Software Park in Ho Chi Minh City.
Kiwi Connection Tech Hub represents an ecosystem of business capability providers, working together between New Zealand and South East Asia to provide a gateway for accessing tech talent and investment capital, or delivering technology offerings into Vietnam and across the wider ASEAN region. We exist to support Kiwi innovation and hi-tech companies in doing business in South East Asia.
Kiwi Connection Tech Hub gives New Zealand businesses instant access to Vietnam’s large pool of highly-skilled tech talent – providing Kiwi innovators with the capability, capacity and scalability to accelerate product development and integration projects, implementation work and support services.
Additionally, being locally present, we are also able to help deliver services associated with technology offerings into Vietnam and the ASEAN region and provide support to customers well beyond New Zealand business hours and time zone limitations.
Kiwi Connection Tech Hub is currently exploring ways to provide capability for and direct access to business development avenues – initially in Vietnam and subsequently other ASEAN markets.
Talk to us if you are interested to know more or would like to get involved and work with us.
Why Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam?
Due to its large population and consistently high economic growth rate, Vietnam today has one of the largest and fastest-growing digital economies in Asia. It has extremely high internet and mobile penetration and a rapidly accelerating digital consumption appetite, making it an attractive market for international tech businesses, many of whom are already present.
Ho Chi Minh City is the largest commercial hub in Vietnam, with the fastest growth in technology businesses, talent and investment. Geographically, the city is also centrally located to provide easy access to all of the main centres of government, commerce and industry in the ASEAN region.
Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) is one of the largest tech parks in Vietnam, only 20 minutes from the international airport and 40 minutes to Ho Chi Minh City’s CBD (District 1). QTSC currently hosts over 130 companies and nearly 20,000 tech workers. The tech park is also home to the Vietnamese central government’s secured national data centre.
