    Meet Mỹ Tâm

    I'm a serial social entrepreneur focusing on systems change with more than two decades of experience supporting people behind impactful ideas in entrepreneurship, finance, and philanthropy to launch, transition, and scale.


    Connecting sectors to transform cities, companies, national initiatives, and global humanitarian efforts is where I thrive from modular housing to homelessness and fintech, immigrant integration to economic development strategies for refugees, and providing education to youth and women in collapsed democracies. I've been at the forefront of launching and implementing practical innovations that meet the needs of those who are historically left out of opportunities and resources.


    My lived experience in low-income housing and food instability in the U.S., deep poverty in Vietnam, and as a cancer survivor in my 20's informs my work in healing leadership, cultivating transformational systems change in government, startups, and non-profits across the U.S. and in Europe.


    Outside of work, I read 200+ books a year, am happiest in warm tropical water, an avid gardener and home cook, and a devoted friend, daughter, proud auntie, and regular farmers' market shopper. A graduate of the Harvard Graduate School of Design & the University of Washington, I sit on the boards and councils for UW Press, the Share Fund, and JustFund.
