Every year BusinessWeek.com holds a contest to find the best entrepreneur age 30 or under in the Asia-Pacific region.

This year’s winner was Nguyen Minh Tri, a 25-year-old from Vietnam who graduated from the University of Portland in Oregon and then worked in the Silicon Valley at Serena Software for several years.

He says, “Entrepreneurship is not my career, it’s my passion.”

What a great thing to have as your passion. Something that drives and directs you to keep moving forward in your business life.

His company, Viet Tech, has offices in both Portland, Oregon and Ho Chi Minh City and focuses on software development and outsourcing – specializing within the small and medium business arena.
