Dr. Truong Gia Binh symbolizes passion, dedication, and inspiration in his efforts to establish FPT Corporation in the ICT sector over the past 30 years. Under his guidance, the multi-billion corporation is now collaborating with other large, multinational companies on the global technology field.

For over 30 years, Dr. Truong Gia Binh has successfully led a Vietnamese technology corporation in the ever changing IT industry. Now, he seeks to be a pioneer in the company’s digital transformation. He believes that digital transformation is about more than technology. It’s a change in people, in thought and in organizational culture.

“Those who live without fear, who desire and live boldly by grand visions, using emerging technologies in a digital life will be successful,” said Mr. Binh in an interview with Bloomberg. 

FPT made strong impressions with its recent acquisition of 90% of Intellinet’s stakes, thus becoming the first-ever Vietnamese tech firm to acquire a US consultancy firm. At the time of the acquisition, Intellinet was one of the fastest growing technology consultancy firms in the US and serves more than 200 customers, many of whom are on the Fortune 500 List.

FPT is also a pioneer in accompanying the world’s leading technology corporations in building advanced digital technology platforms such as GE (Predix), Siemens (MindSphere), Amazon AWS …

Following Dr. Binh’s vision, FPT also launched its venture fund: FPT Accelerator, a technology incubation program to provide support to startups. Thereby, building a technological ecosystem in which FPT is the leading driver of innovation. ANTS, CyRadar, WeFit, Wisepass are some of the successful start-ups from the program..
