Together with Schoolab, the innovation hub from Paris and our sponsors Vingroup, Dreamplex, Vintech and Microsoft, we’re building the bridge between entrepreneurs, investors, leaders & the innovation ecosystem in Asia via the Hanoi Innovation Summit.

This two-day event will focus on Vietnam’s booming entrepreneurial ecosystem, including a startup competition to pitch and exhibit for free, win the ƠI Award, a $10,000 cash prize, gifts from Techsauce Summit & The Next Web, and 1-week acceleration bootcamp in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, among other things.

We’re welcoming top-tier Tech leaders, including top investors such as Michael Lints, Partner at Golden Gate Ventures; Carman Chan, Founder and Managing Partner at Click Ventures and Eze Vidra, Managing Partner and Remagine Ventures. Among the leading entrepreneurs joining us are Dang Chau of Topica Edtech Group; Selena Le, Founder and CEO of No Waste Vietnam and Arnaud Bonzom, Co-Founder of Map of the Money.

“It is estimated that 62% of the scientists in the country live within Hanoi. The opportunities for personal growth are endless.”

In the past few years, Vietnam’s exports have doubled, and its global economic footprint has drastically expanded.
This is partly due to a competitive workforce, doubled with low-cost local infrastructure and growing foreign investments. But it is not all there is to the trade game of Vietnam — the country is positioning itself as an upcoming challenger in today’s economy, thanks to smart trade agreements and ideal geographical location.

Bordering China and only a stone’s throw away from Hong Kong, Vietnam is now the ‘Silicon Valley of Hardware’ according to Wired. A location which is also convenient the other way around, namely, for China, who has decided to move huge parts of its production to Vietnam.

Besides enlarging its export footprint in Asia, Vietnam is also setting its sights on other international markets. Earlier this month, a joint statement with the European Union was issued, announcing a new trade deal — an ambitious agreement effectively ensuring further growth in the APAC region, with Vietnam at its very core.

A handful of spots are still available to join the World of Innovation in Vietnam this August.
