Six startups presented their projects in the final round of the National Startup Competition 2017 on December 26, from which the winner will be announced on January 12 at the Startup Festival.

This six are the MultiGlass project, with intelligent communications equipment, from the VP9 Vietnam JSC, the Homestay Belocals project from the Ho Chi Minh City University of Economics and Law, an event organizer and human resources provider project from the Lac Hong University in southern Dong Nai province, a project cultivating mushrooms from agricultural by-products of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Agriculture and Forestry, the H’Mong B & C chicken farm project of the Vietnam Agricultural Academy, and a project on the production and trading of high-grade mushrooms and other vegetables of the Vietnam Forestry University.

The six came from an original list of 1,200 projects submitted to the competition.

In attendance at the final round were Mr. Nguyen Quang Vinh, General Secretary of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), Mr. Nguyen Tien Dung, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Vietnam Business Forum magazine and General Secretary of the startup program, Mr. Nguyen Linh Anh, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Vietnam Business Forum, and Associate Professor Le Van Luyen, Deputy Director of Banking Academy.

Mr. Vinh said that creating favorable conditions for the business environment has been a focus of the Party, the State, and the government this year. Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc recently signed Decision No. 1665 approving the “Supporting Students and Startups to 2025” project.

The National Startup competition is a key program of the Vietnam Business Forum magazine and held annually.

Fifteen years ago, VCCI organized its first startup event and also issued the first international-standard textbooks on startups and business development, in cooperation with the International Labor Organization (ILO).

“This year, the organizers invited prestigious lecturers and well-known entrepreneurs to participate on the Advisory Council to consult and train the Top 15 projects,” Mr. Vinh said.

Associate Professor Luyen said there has been a wave of startups in Vietnam over recent times, especially by young people.
