HÀ NỘI — Twelve Vietnamese start-ups will compete in the regional finals of the ASEAN Rice Bowl Start-up Awards (RBSA) in Malaysia in January 2020, according to the organisers.
The Vietnamese start-ups will have to beat competitors from other ASEAN member countries to win berths in the global competition slated for December 2020 in China.
The start-ups won a national competition to qualify. They include Up GEN competing in the category for Best Co-working Space; Chatbot Vietnam in the Best E-Commerce and Supply Chain Start-up category; and EyeQ Tech in the Best AI/Machine Learning Start-up category.
Organised by the New Entrepreneurs Foundation, the annual RBSA celebrates the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship in the Southeast Asian start-up ecosystem.
The awards recognise innovation, excellence, and best practice in start-ups across the region. They also honour the excitement, risk and hard work involved in developing a start-up and the influence each person has on driving the success of their company. — VNS
