Huy Do started his career in the Silicon Valley at global law firms specializing in cross-border matters for multinational corporations, handling both corporate transactions and dispute resolution, including trying jury cases to verdict. His work with Silicon Valley technology companies attracted the attention of tech startups and he was seconded to work for several companies negotiating deals primarily involving corporate, contract, intellectual property, and securities laws. On the creative side, Huy has worked with different creative constituents around the world to finance, produce, commercialize and distribute creative works. He has traveled extensively representing clients in Europe and Asia. Eventually he joined his clients and co-founded several tech startups, including a talent app, and later transitioned into senior executive investment roles.
Huy has a passion for good stories and even greater affinity for great story-telling. He co-founded his first creative company featuring two fictional child characters with special powers derived from zodiac signs. As the Managing and Production Editor, he co-developed and directed the publication and distribution of a children’s storybook to local schools and libraries. While in law school he served as an editor on Law Review and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Law and Social Challenges, a scholarly journal he co-founded.
In 2001, after returning from his first trip back to Vietnam in 2000, he and other Vietnamese-American professionals founded a global network to support Vietnamese tech entrepreneurs. This network expanded and eventually reached Vietnam in 2008, now known as SAVVi Code. The organization’s signature event is TECx, which celebrates the convergence of technology and the creative arts, namely film, and music.
