Minh majored in Religion and Visual Culture with a focus on Buddhist Studies in University of California Santa Cruz. After graduating, he lived for one and half years in a meditation center near the mountains of California before moving to Vietnam to work in An Giang University, a university near the border of Vietnam and Cambodia. At the university, he taught English and worked in the International Relations office. After that stint, he transitioned from the education world to the startup world when he moved to Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam, where he worked in multiple startups before joining Tech In Asia as an editor and journalist. The role gave him broad access into Vietnam’s evolving startup ecosystem where he wrote extensively here.
