BSSC’s vision is not only facilitating startup growth but also creating a bridge between international startups and useful resources in Vietnam. We want to be a part of every startup’s journey. That’s the reason why we are open to international startups who want to enter the Vietnamese market. We’d like to support international startups to explore the Vietnamese market, find local partners and customers.

As an international founder, the competition will enable you to earn insights, broaden and strengthen the network among the Startup Wheel network including government, corporate sponsors, VCs, CVCs, angel investors, educational institutions, incubators, accelerators, civil society organizations, start-ups, user/consumer communities. This is also an opportunity to showcase your business to potential investors, partners, and customers in Vietnam.
