Last week, our CEO and co-founder, Thuc Vu was invited as a speaker for a local meetup on Telehealth organized by Health Technology Forum, a group of more than 4000 worldwide experts in healthcare. The main goal of the group is to connect entrepreneurs with professionals who are solving problems associated with the current healthcare ecosystem to finally achieve an efficient and affordable care-giving for all.
A few years ago, our two co-founders Thuc Vu and Jared Go used to be roommates at Stanford, playing online soccer games against each other. Now they are teammates at OhmniLabs creating robots that work on enhancing people’s daiy life, especially the aging community.
Back to where it all began, they appeared at the KZSU Innovators 90.1 FM Radio Show of Stanford with host Tom Dioro, to trace their robotics journey starting from their Stanford’s dorm room.
Ohmni's auction at the event brought about 6,000 USD, which is an equivalent of 6 scholarships that will help to cover 75% of the tuition and living expenses for 6 Viet Seeds for one year in college. Apart from that, all the Seeds also receive trainings and works phops outside of their academic study to prepare them for the real world challenges.
Ohmnilabs' CEO and co-founder Thuc Vu happens to be one of the two founders of VietSeeds. The other co-founder is Vu Van, the co-founder of Elsa Speak App. They both share one same value which led them to establish VietSeeds together. "I have been very lucky all my life so far to be supported by many people I have encountered on my path. I just want to pay it forward, and that was one of the reasons why I founded VietSeeds," said Thuc.
