Why Mekong Capital
Founded in 2001, Mekong Capital is a Vietnam-focused Private Equity firm, specializing in consumer-driven businesses. Mekong Capital’s investee companies are typically among the fastest growing and market-leading companies in Vietnam’s consumer-driven sectors such as Mobile World, PNJ, Golden Gate, Pizza 4P’s, F88, Marou, etc.
You may be excited to be an added value partner with our investee companies in realizing an unpredictable future. But…
Only join us if you want to reinvent Private Equity, and generate breakthroughs, wealth, and fulfillment. Why?
Because we do NOT do Private Equity like everyone else.
What you will do
- You will add value through Vision Driven Investing framework (VDI). It is NOT a set of best practices or solutions. It is NOT something that you can give or force onto a company.
- You will NOT convince them or share ideas to help them excel. Vice versa, you will author your communications in a way that our investee companies will have new perspectives and take actions newly that lead to breakthroughs for their vision to be achieved.
- You will re-discover who you are, reinvent how you communicate, and how you empower the success of your teams, thus transforming your leadership.
- You will proactively coordinate with others, and inquire to have a clear picture of the intention and the expected outcome.
- You will powerfully make requests, hold others accountable, and stay in communication to handle obstacles fully when others are not delivering what is needed for the project to be completed.
Accordingly, we have designed our onboarding and employee development opportunities relating to the discovery of Mekong Capital’s core values, and transformations in who you see yourselves as access to elevate your performance.
