At ihouse we are building an environment and cultural resources. It’s not like the corporate culture, but generally comes from common cultural background of Vietnam.
Every civilized cultures, are sustainable rooted everyday casual strokes. This culture can be formed from the consultation and exchange between this startup group with other startup group, from the casual lunch, or from the general the meeting between the startup community.
