Except are gearing up to revolutionize how Vietnamese businesses connect and work toward a resilient future. On Thursday 16th June, and in collaboration with DBAV, Except and our network of 20+ partners met with and welcomed potential new investors, suppliers, and partners to attend the "ViCo & Orchid City Investors and Partner Event."

Held at Laang Saigon in Thao Dien, Ho Chi Minh City and hosted by Christina Ameln from Sustainable Vietnam, the evening provided a chance to introduce current and potential partners and investors to Orchid City and ViCo, our new sustainability community in Vietnam.

We were thrilled to have packed out the imitate venue with 40+ guests, helping us to reinforce current relationships and meet many new faces wishing to support and collaborate. It was an evening of great conversation, inspiration, and another milestone in developing Orchid City, the ViCo sustainability hub, and Except's presence in Vietnam's dynamic business landscape.

Please see the links below to learn more about both projects and the roles they will play Vietnam:

ViCo is Vietnam's first innovation community for sustainability, connecting global and local organizations and policymakers with shared workspaces to collaborate and exchange insight and knowledge.

The community will be housed in an exemplary sustainable shared working space to complement and enhance collaboration between members and partnered organizations. It will improve operations through shared marketing and joint development programs and engage broader society through an innovative restaurant, cafe, and public events.

Orchid City is Except's integrated, self-sufficient, and climate-adaptive city blueprint. Utilizing regenerative agriculture, renewable energy, water management, mixed housing typologies, and providing all social needs, Orchid City will help realize the next generation of sustainable cities and neighborhoods in Vietnam. We are currently looking for new investment and development partners.

We express our deep gratitude to all those involved and attended and looking forward to the next event.
