Startup of Nguyen Hai Ninh called for $ 1.7 million in capital

According to Mr. Ninh, this is not a new business, even the oldest hotel in the world appeared nearly a thousand years ago. However, he sees opportunities from the fragmented market and growing demand for rent due to the change in attitudes about home ownership and young people’s living and working styles.

Mr. Ninh added that price competition with motel or apartment owners has never been a problem for this business. The reason is that this brand focuses on developing living space for a relatively specific group of customers, who are in the age group of about 25-35, unmarried, and have not yet committed to a certain accommodation.

The $1.7 million capital just successfully called was used by M Village to develop the system in Ho Chi Minh City. The goal is that by the end of this year, the company will lead this area in the number of rooms for rent with about 1,000. After that, the company continued to raise capital to expand the system to major cities and tourist cities with the goal of leading the serviced apartment market in the next two years.
