Hello! I’m Thao - a Vietnamese designer coming from a mixed background in media, product marketing and social entrepreneurship. I’m interested in how technology and design can be used to reimagine and co-create alternative futures for education.
Prior to GID, I began my career at Fortune 500 companies before taking the leap into social entrepreneurship as one of the 25 founders in South East Asia selected for the Young Sustainable Impact incubator in 2020. Since then, I have been helping various start-ups in the climate tech space to launch and validate products and services from scratch.
