Vietnam has one of the fastest growing internet economies in Southeast Asia, with a growth rate of 36 percent in 2020 (Statista). Fundiin is backed by international venture capital investors, such as 1982 Ventures.

Despite the COVID-19 crisis, Vietnam has managed GDP growth of nearly three percent. Ongoing urbanization and evolving consumer demand are fueling rapid expansion of ecommerce.
