Commercializing start-up ideas


According to VCCI Khanh Hoa, over the past time, the startup spirit has strongly spread across the country. In Khanh Hoa, nearly 2,000 new businesses are established annually, including many start-ups. However, startup programs are very few. There are some startup groups of overseas students from Japan, the US, Canada, the UK, the Netherlands or Israel, they are spontaneous.


Dang Thi Thu Nguyet - Chief Representative of VCCI Khanh Hoa said that 3 years ago, VCCI Khanh Hoa planned a program to support start-ups and innovative start-ups according to international standards with the cooperation and support from PUM (Netherlands), the National Startup Program, the Department of Science and Technology... After many years of preparation, up to now, VCCI Khanh Hoa has officially launched the program with the goal to train and commercialize business ideas of 10 to 15 startup groups in 3 to 6 months. Along with that, the program will develop a sustainable startup ecosystem, connecting with national and international startup networks.


Professor Maud - a senior expert of PUM commented that the training and commercialization of startup ideas is a great idea of ​​the program. This program may increase the success of startups, create high-value jobs and support the local economy. Although the program is under the support of PUM, in order to succeed in the coming time, the program needs more advice from experts in many other fields.
