Dr. Dam Quang Thang, a former student of Agriculture at the Vietnam National University of Agriculture, has embarked on a journey filled with challenges and successes, ultimately becoming an Innovative Startup Expert. Having previously overseen marketing and imports and exports for a leading agricultural supply company in Vietnam, he accumulated valuable knowledge in this field.

Dr. Thang never ceased to dream in making a positive impact on the startup scene in Vietnam. His enthusiasm and spirit of integration drove him to establish Agricare Vietnam, focusing on converging agriculture with the application of information technology.

Beyond just doing business, Dr. Thang dedicated valuable time to supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs. He actively served as the Chairman of the Vietnam Startup Mentors Alliance (VSMA).

BizCare: Sustainable business growth and Positive social impact in Vietnam

In 2020, Dr. Thang established BizCare with a vision to transform the startup landscape in Vietnam. BizCare was built upon empathy and understanding of the challenges entrepreneurs face. The company created a platform that offers business health checks, develops tailored strategies, and provides comprehensive guidance in all aspects of entrepreneurship. They expanded operations to support startups from inception, transferring their innovative model to universities and enhancing the local community spirit.

Dr. Thang, the Managing Director of BizCare, now the Managing Director of BizCare, describes their services: "We assist businesses in solving business issues, optimizing processes, and enhancing long-term growth and sustainability. BizCare hopes to shorten the journey for CEOs and founders."

"Support the Community, the Community will support you"

Established during the COVID-19 pandemic, BizCare has undergone a challenging journey. Nevertheless, with a strong faith in the values they bring to the community, BizCare has continuously thrived and succeeded. Many businesses supported by BizCare have also made new strides in their business operations, including Truong Foods, Bh.Nong, and An Thai Hung.

In just three years of development, BizCare has supported and stood by nearly 30 startups across Vietnam, helping them overcome initial challenges and succeed. BizCare has become a reliable partner, fostering development and promoting innovation within the Vietnamese startup community.

"Throughout its journey of supporting the community, BizCare has also received tremendous support from the community, notably from Swiss EP and their experienced international experts," shared Dr. Thang.

"The support and collaborative opportunities with international experts, such as Enrico Fantini, Martin Kenneth Lopez, Chin Hing Chang, and Michelle Lane Messina through the Entrepreneur in Residence (EIRs) program, have provided BizCare with invaluable learning opportunities and a profound understanding of the startup landscape. Consequently, BizCare has developed support programs and services tailored to the startup community in Northern Vietnam and across the entire country."
