The meeting started off with Ms Van Dang, Savvycom CEO, talking about her personal journey, from selling peanuts to help her mom out in the street corner 30 years ago to having an international business that appeared on Clutch’s TOP 25 IT outsourcing companies. She mentioned the help of her mentor from the Mentoring Women in Business programme with love and gratitude, believing that it was the encounter that changed the course of her life. She also stated that Mrs Cherie Blair has been a huge inspiration, being such a go-getter and a prominent voice for equal treatments between boys and girls.

For those reasons, Ms Van Dang now returns to the programme as a mentor, seeking to help talented women to join the IT industry.

During the visit, Ms Van Dang also took Mrs Cherie Blair and the delegation on a tour of Savvycom office. There, Mrs Cherie Blair was fascinated with Savvycom’s Happy Corner and the motivational slogans hanging around the office.

HerVenture is a mobile learning app that supports women entrepreneurs to access the skills, confidence and networks they need to grow their businesses.
HerVenture provides essential business training, enabling women to access skills-building information ‘on the go’. It features five learning ‘tracks’, including launching a business, product innovation and expanding market access. Based on user input, the app suggests a personalised study roadmap for each entrepreneur. Content is provided in bite-sized, easily digestible formats such as swipeable cards, quizzes and videos. The app also allows users to find and connect with each other, as well as learn about local business events.

Being a huge spokesperson of human rights, Mrs Cherie Blair emphasized:
“Choice. It could be nothing short than life-changing. The choice to rely on income from our spouse and partner, or the choice to create that income our self. The choice to take care of the family at home, or the choice to do businesses in the boardroom. Or the choice to do both. But for too many women, they have no choice.” That’s the drive behind HerVenture’s development: to give women a chance to study about business free of cost, and then make their own decisions.

Through discussion, we recognized the importance of not only advocating for women empowerment in business but also assisting them through their rocky roads. Mrs Van Dang experienced the same hardship starting our Savvycom in 2009, but thanks to her mentor in the Mentoring Women In Business programme, the company has become Vietnam’s Most Trusted App Developer and Tech Co-Founders with more than 100 clients worldwide. Now, she returned the favours by becoming a proud mentor of the program in the last 4 years.

Savvycom believes that Mrs Van Dang will continue to support women entrepreneurs worldwide – especially in the IT industry, and we are looking forward to working with potential partners in the future.
