‘Companies create communities, communities create economies’: Sunwah Innovations CEO Jesse Choi
As the flagship branch of a network of innovation centers, Sunwah Innovation Center Ho Chi Minh City aims to help Vietnamese startups scale up globally.
Sunwah Group began as a seafood processing business in Hong Kong in 1957. Over the years, it has grown into a conglomerate with a diverse portfolio of companies operating in various industries, including real estate, financial services, media, and healthcare. Today, Sunwah has business operations around the world, spanning mainland China, ASEAN nations, and countries in North America and Europe.
In recent years, the group has branched out into the innovation economy. Since 2018, the company has set up innovation centers across Asia, including Chinese cities such as Tianjin and Beijing, Phnom Penh in Cambodia, as well as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
These facilities offer workspaces for entrepreneurs and startups to access resources for building and growing their businesses under one roof. At the same time, through partnerships established with universities and industry stakeholders, the innovation hubs aim to nurture an ecosystem of startups to produce cutting-edge solutions, as well as foster fresh talent.
