ĐÀ NẴNG — More than 1,000 participants including local and foreign investors, start-up businesses and investment funds will attend the second International Start-up Conference and Exhibition in Đà Nẵng on July 21-22.
Chairman of Đà Nẵng’s Co-ordination Council for the Business Start-up Network, Võ Duy Khương made the reveal at a press conference yesterday, stating that the event, entitled Surf-the start-up wave 2017, would include 80 pavilions from start-up projects and businesses, institutes, colleges and sponsors in panel discussions, roundtables, pitching competitions, and exhibitions.
Khương said the event’s organising committee had invited motivational speaker Jeff Hoffman, who is cofounder of Priceline.com and cofounder of ColorJar, to join the two-day event focusing on the start-up ecosystem, support policies and investment as well as sharing experience and technology.
The event aims to boost Đà Nẵng as an innovation hub of central Việt Nam and the region.
The event is sponsored by the Asia Development Bank, the Mekong Business Initiative, Swiss EP and the Innovation Partnership Programme in Việt Nam.
Last month, the central city’s Sông Hàn Incubator launched a tourism start-up programme with the sponsorship of the Việt Nam Mentors Initiative, I-Angel, Women’s Initiative for Start-up Enterprise and Swiss SP.
