HÀ NỘI — A start-up incubation programme, entitled “Start & Up – Behind the Scene”, was launched in Hà Nội on Monday.
Co-hosted by the National Economics University (NEU)’s Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Republic of Korea’s Nextrans venture fund, and V-Startup, the programme aims to seek start-ups with potential and provide them with capital, training and market access.
The online training curriculum will feature interviews with CEOs and founders, as well as success and failure stories collected by founders of successful start-ups and corporate executives of major tech firms.
A maximum of 100 start-ups with be entered into the programme, each with the chance of receiving US$20,000 for their ideas.
On completion of achieving their original goals, they could receive an additional $200,000 and enter the second round of funding from Nextrans’ global investors.
NEU Rector Trần Thọ Đạt said that in order to promote entrepreneurship among students and new businesses, support from investors was needed to turn their ideas into reality.
He suggested closer links between students and businesses to create products that would meet the market demand. — VNS
