Rafael Masters came to Vietnam for a short stint – to teach English on the beach after completing university. Little did he know that he would start his own business in the country and contribute to its socio-economic progress by helping the disabled through his venture, Vulcan Augmetics, which would go on to emerge as only the second enterprise in Vietnam to receive investment and innovation from Techstars.
In an interview with the Saigon Times, Masters talks about his plans for success his hopes for the future and admits that even 13 years after living in Saigon, HCMC, he will still never learn to haggle with Vietnamese vendors.
