On the initiative of Thang DAO, it was decided to create a new space “Market Place” or more accurately called “START-UP” dedicated to new entrepreneurs and project leaders of enterprise.

Indeed, some of our members have good projects and good ideas to be taken, but can’t implement them, since it is not so easy to achieve alone and that this constitutes a real obstacle course to  develop its “own” business plan, business model, financing, R & D, marketing, organization, …

Thus, project leaders of enterprise will be able to showcase their projects,  present their specific needs (funding, expertise, development, …) and in return receive the feedback of members “VCL Business Club” or expressions of interest and their possible future partners .

Since some of our Members want to publish them in this topic and want to  carry them, they can  make a request to of the leaders  either to support in the preparation and the organization of meetings on one hand or to identify and mobilize within its own networks, other multidisciplinary talents and missing the other hand.

This one could  support the project promoter by acting as a “moderator” in the early meetings for  opportunities business cases  or as a “facilitator” in the presentation or the recommendation of the project leader to other members of “VCL Business Club” or other people he knows well through his current professional activities and / or  previous.

“VCL Business Club currently have four local leaders: France, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

They know very well the country where they practice, allowing members from elsewhere to be able to find points of entry and comfort when needed and this provided the link “Face to Face” can be done in healthy conditions and that “the dynamics of trust” which is the source of conductive desires are satisfied and verified between the concerned parties.
