Son Le Thanh is a professional software developer with more than 10 years of experience. During his career, he progressed from being Java programmer at Saigon Software Park, a Vietnamese Government-linked company, to his current role as a Product Manager at Deskera Open Source, a Sequoia-backed company in Singapore. Son launched his foray into the Singapore startup scene at Startup Weekend in October 2011, where he spun off a social mobile application project that had been conceptualized at the same event. Being a hustler, Son was rejected by the Founders Institute four times and by sheer grit, he soldiered on and was finally accepted into the April 2012 intake. In June 2012, Son launched the StartupGrind event series in Singapore after his trip to the Silicon Valley in April 2012. The event currently gathers a consistent crowd to share startup experiences and foster new networks. In his spare time, Son enjoys teaching people build websites over a weekend crash course
