As many as 500 young successful entrepreneurs from across Vietnam shared their start-up experience at a forum in Ho Chi Minh City on December 19.

The Vietnam Young Leaders Forum 2014, held by the Business Startup Support Centre under the Vietnam Youth Federation’s HCM City chapter and the HCM City Young Entrepreneurs Association, was the first of its kind so far.

Organisers said the event was aimed to encourage young businesspersons’ determination of doing business and sense of responsibility towards the community.

It was also meant to connect young entrepreneurs nationwide to form a community that will together improve their knowledge and innovative spirit, thus contributing to national development.

During the forum, exemplars from various sectors shared their stories and discussed with their peers issues such as breakthrough vision, challenges of integration, personnel trademark, and responsibility to the society.-VNA
