A Consonant blend between Big Firm and Startup – The story of a little tree

From the story of a little tree

Living in a tropical country, everyone needed shade at their own house to deal with the hot weather. Almost all residents bought some giant umbrellas and felt rather complacent with the cool shade instantly created by those umbrellas on dog days of summer. Start was the only one to buy a little seed and plant it in the center of his front yard. He put the seed into the soil and watered it. At first, everything went smoothly – the seed grew into a green shoot and then a little tree in front of Start’s hopeful eyes. However, the climate of his homeland was not favorable for the little tree. It showed signs of stunted growth and gradually withered. Not losing his heart, Start persisted in learning and trying out every way possible to nourish the little tree.

At last, Start found out the suitable way to nourish the tree in unfavorable climate. Its branches started to grow and grow. Many years later, the little tree became a big one with thick trunk. It created a cool shade not only for Start himself, but also for his backyard. What’s more, the tree also provided his family with fruits in its season. Start also made a tree swing right under its foliage for his children. Meanwhile, the umbrellas of his neighbors provided shade for only a small area and downgraded over time. Umbrellas could not grow bigger and of course, there was no fruit to harvest for their owners.

To our story

Our Dai Viet Group also originated from such a seed. In 2006, Mr. Le Xuan Truong, a young man born in the 80s, dreamt of building a real estate portal, which was a relatively new and unfamiliar sector at the time, with only 2 people and 50 million dong. After 11 years of fighting for his passion, CEO Le Xuan Truong has successfully made Dai Viet Group what it is today with over 700 employees and branches in over 9 provinces and cities nationwide.

From a little seed, Dai Viet Group is now known as a leading developer of online portals in the advertising and communications sector. Most noteworthily, Batdongsan.com.vn, receiving 50 million visits /month, is a Dai Viet Group’s product which has become a top-notch real estate portal not only in Vietnam, but also in South East Asia.

From then on, Dai Viet Group has continued to launch other leading thematic websites such as banxehoi.com, chodocu.com, and tinnhac.com to answer the needs of internet users in Vietnam. Since 2016, Dai Viet Group has extended its reach to international markets with Auto Portals Project and quickly taken over the top positions in many regional countries.
