During the month of June, ATA is highlighting LGBTQIA+ employees of membership organizations who support our mission of promoting civic engagement in Austin’s tech sector. Up this week: Minh Vu.
Minh is the Program Manager at Capital Factory in Austin, Texas where he leads and develops strategy and programming to support entrepreneurs and tech professionals. A native Texan, Minh was born to refugee parents in West Texas and raised in Central Texas. At an early age, he quickly learned how to navigate white and heteronormative spaces while finding refuge in television and art. His passion for storytelling and giving back fueled his education and career path.
In turn, he’s become a resourceful and empathetic communicator and storyteller with years of experience driving complex, diverse and inclusive projects from ideation to execution with minimal guidance. He has a proven ability to be adaptive in evolving, fast-paced environments – from corporate to startups – and improve cross-functional team collaboration in order to achieve impactful results.
Prior to joining Capital Factory, he led marketing on behalf of the State of Texas to promote the state as a premier production destination for the media production industries. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, he was heavily involved in the film and television industry in Los Angeles at NBCUniversal supporting teams in Events, Publicity and Programming.
