What if the next billion dollar companies were going to be the ones that solved the world’s most pressing problems?

And what if Vietnam could be home to these companies?

During this conversation, Matthew will discuss the revolutionary new ways capital, technology and creativity are being deployed to change the way we live and how these same approaches can be deployed in Vietnam to create game changing companies that can change the world.
