Emphasising the appeal of Southeast Asia’s expansive market and abundant workforce, Michael Wu, Venture Partner at Hive Ventures, highlighted the region’s significance for startups.

Moldintel and Sightour, both recommended by these experts, stood out for their mature and innovative AI products. Their recognition as finalists in Vietnam’s prominent startup competition, InnoEx, further solidified their standing.
