This name was infamous associated with poor performance at school, with six exam resits for one subject, and 4-5 resits for around 30 subjects each! It was sheer luck that Vu graduated from university. Yet he was also known for his rather impressive entrepreneurial idea: collecting data from all businesses in Vietnam.
