IDG Ventures Vietnam (IDGVV) is the first technology venture capital fund in Vietnam. Since 2004, we’ve been working with entrepreneurs to grow innovative and market-leading companies. IDGVV currently has $100 million under management, with investments in over 40 companies in the technology, media, telecommunications, and consumer sectors. Our offices are located in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Singapore.
Our anchor Limited Partner investor is International Data Group (IDG), the world’s largest IT media company. IDG Ventures is a global family of 5 locally-managed funds in China, Vietnam, India, Korea, and the United States totaling over $3.7 billion under management. As one of the truly global venture firms, IDG Ventures has invested in over 350 companies over the last 17 years.
IDG Ventures Vietnam was established in 2004, but IDG has had a presence in Vietnam since 1992, when the company launched PC World Vietnam, the first computer publication in Vietnam. In 1994, IDG founder Patrick McGovern made the first of his more than two dozen visits to Vietnam.
IDG Ventures Vietnam was established to follow in the successful footsteps and experience of IDG Ventures China, which was formed in 1993 as the first American venture capital firm in China.
Our team of four partners and fifteen talented investment professionals are among the most knowledgeable and committed in Vietnam and the region. Our partners have over 50 years’ combined experience in investments, operations, and entrepreneurship across Vietnam and Southeast Asia.
We invest in high-quality companies from inception to growth stage, with an emphasis on consumer, technology, media and ICT sectors. We are typically the first institutional investor in a company and serve as the lead or co-lead with a board participation in almost all investments.
Our involvement and relationship with management deepens after investment. Capitalizing on an in-depth knowledge of the local market and a wealth of market resources, we take a hands-on approach with all of our portfolio companies. We provide strategic guidance, business development, marketing and recruitment support to help our companies grow to the next level.
A long history of working with early-stage companies allows us to better understand the issues they face and to provide each of them value-added experience, resources and perspective. We are able to draw on the expertise of our general partners and the collective IDG global experience, particularly from China, to accelerate the growth of our portfolio companies and reduce early-stage risk. Plus, our focus is a strength: the companies we invest in form a complementary ecosystem that helps to build the overall market.
