Mekong Capital received the Contribution to HR Community Award at the Asia Human Resources Development (HRD) Awards 2018, held in Ho Chi Minh City on October 11.

This award is a celebration and recognition of Mekong Capital’s extraordinary influence and contribution to advancements in the field of human development.

“We always put investment in human development as our high priority, because we understand that the most important factor to succeed is building a strong team that takes action to deliver the expected results,” said Ms. Nguyen Thi Minh Giang, Director of Talent and Culture at Mekong Capital.

Mekong Capital becomes the second recipient based in Vietnam to receive this Asia-wide award.

Over the years, Mekong Capital has been adding value to its investee companies by introducing a wide range of HR best practices. It partners with its investee companies to recruit and train strong teams and create a clear set of core values and corporate culture. These enable the companies to reliably deliver the expected results and achieve their annual milestones and long-term vision.

Launched as an independent initiative in 2003, the Asia HRD Awards has become a prestigious annual event. Recipients are honored for bringing significant changes to human development through their initiatives in five categories: Lifetime Achievement, Contribution to Society, Contribution to Organization, Contribution to HR Community, and Movers and Shakers.

Mekong Capital is a Vietnam-focused private equity firm specializing in consumer driven businesses and looking to invest in fast-growing companies with ambitious expansion plans and a commitment to building management teams that will successfully execute on those expansion plans.

Its funds have completed 33 private equity investments in Vietnam, of which 26 have been fully exited. Its latest investment vehicle, the Mekong Enterprise Fund III (MEF III), has to date announced investments in seven companies, including lending firm F88, logistics companies Nhat Tin and ABA, restaurant operator Red Wok, Ben Thanh Jewelry, Yola Education, and mattress retailer Vua Nem. All investee firms in MEF III are implementing the Vision Driven Investing framework.
