Hanoi (VNA) – Three Vietnamese start-ups will travel to Malaysia to seek business opportunities in the country under an exchange programme for start-ups entitled “Runway to the World”.

The programme is launched by the Saigon Innovation Hub (SiHub) under the Ho Chi Minh City’s Department of Science-Technology. 

The three start-ups selected for the programme are EyeQ Tech (a face recognition application for smart camera), Gcalls (a speed dial solutions for businesses) and Boom Potty (a sanitation device for toddlers from eight months old to 3.5 years old).

The exchange programme was officially started in January this year with the first partner being Shinhan Future’s Lab from the Republic of Korea. 

Under the cooperation, three start-ups of the RoK travelled to Vietnam to explore and enter the market, as well as connect start-up ecosystems and markets of Vietnam and the RoK and promote bilateral trade.

The “Runway to the World” aims to link local start-ups with organisations and start-up ecosystems in North America, Western Europe, North Asia and the Asia-Pacific. 

It fosters Vietnamese start-ups while selecting suitable foreign start-ups to explore, research and launch trade activities in Vietnam.-VNA
