Understanding VC is a deep dive on how Venture Capitalists work. In this episode, I talk to Vy Le, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Do Ventures on their 2 investment models, an automated reporting system that Do Ventures use to support their portfolio companies. She also shares the qualities of a great startup team, the tech trends she is keeping track and why she is excited to be part of Vietnam’s transformation into a major tech hub.


Vy Le is the Co-founder and General Partner of Do Ventures, an early-stage venture capital firm that focuses on making investments in information technology companies in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. The fund is looking for pioneers with a desire to create disruptive products that can bring about outstanding values to society.
