The entrepreneur community in Vietnam is one that’s rapidly growing, and with that comes an increasing amount of startups. Often times, working at a local coffee shop may be too crowded and the costs of renting an entire office building overshadow the benefits of the startup itself. Coworking spaces are designed for creators who are looking for a place to share new ideas whilst developing their businesses. Here are some of the best coworking spaces in Ho Chi Minh City:
