Yale grad advising startups in Vietnam

With nearly 44 percent of its population using the Internet, Vietnam has become the latest target market of 500 Startups, a seed fund and accelerator for Internet startups.
In a statement on its website on Monday, the 2010-founded fund, which is better known for its Silicon Valley accelerator program, announced its venture partners in Vietnam.
Binh Tran, a technologist with more than 20 years of experience and who had founded several startups, and Eddie Thai, a Harvard and Yale graduate and who was recently named in the Forbes Vietnam’s list of 30 future leaders, will act as its advisors.
500 Startups has more than 1,000 companies around the world in its portfolio.
