GO GLOBAL: THE BEGINNING OF THE GLOBAL JOURNEY OF VIETNAMESE STARTUPS – LEAN WORKSHOP Steve Blank – a well-known educator and businessman at Silicon Valley who inspired Eric Ries to write the famous book The Lean Startup, defined start-ups as “a temporary organization used to search for a repeatable and scalable business model”. About scaling up, a few notable names for the “Go Global” trend in Vietnam are Designbold, Money Lover, Beeketing, GotIt!, Triip.me, etc., but there are still only few of them as most Vietnamese startups struggle to scale up and reach out to the international market. With this problem in mind, the Vietnamese Startup Program 2018 with the aim to helping startups develop their strategies to “Expand to the global market” was intiated with top 25 potential startups in 2018 voted by VnExpress.
