Hanoi (VNA) –
Up Co-working Space and the Vietnam Prosperity Joint Stock Commercial Bank (VPBank) jointly opened a hi-end working space in Hanoi on October 10 to provide maximum support for the Vietnamese start-up community

Founder of the UP Co-working Space Do Hoai Nam said businesses will have opportunities to experience the A-standard working space at the UP@VPBANK with reasonable expenses.

Furthermore, UP@VPBANK will offer the best assistance for innovative start-ups and potential financial technology (fintech) businesses to promote creativity and competitiveness, he said.

They will get financial, accounting and legal support from investors, and have opportunities to work together, connect and cooperate to realise the goals of “start-up city” and “start-up nation”, he added.

A representative from VPBank said the bank hopes to create a strong momentum in the development of the start-up community in Vietnam.

In 2017-2018, VPBank Start Up will spend at least one million USD to directly support Vietnamese start-ups.

The strategic cooperation between UP and VPBank is expected to be an important step for the start-up community.

The two sides plan to host a number of activities, including major contests, to support and promote innovative start-ups in Vietnam.

The UP@VPBANK hi-end working space is located at the 21st floor of VP Tower 89 Lang Ha.

UP Co-working Space was developed by entrepreneurs pioneering in the start-up movement in Vietnam. It now has six branches in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.-VNA
