Can Tho (VNA) – The Vietnam Silicon Valley Angel Camp kicked off in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on June 2, offering a chance for students to learn from startup experience.

The event was jointly held by the city’s student support centre, Department of Science and Technology and the Korea-Vietnam Incubator Park (KVIP).

Vien Tuan Thanh, head of the centre, said that the programme helps students, who want to start up business, to meet and connect with investors and successful entrepreneurs, and provides them with knowledge and skills related to startup.

The programme is expected to help form a startup ecosystem in Vietnam.

During the three-day event, students are expected to discuss how to make investors find out potential startups, learn from experience to develop and control startups, and apply technologies in agricultural production.

Director of the KVIP Pham Minh Quoc advised students not to start up business alone.

He asked them to equip themselves with sufficient knowledge and seek assistance from local authorities, organisations and previous startups so as to ensure success and minimise failure.-VNA
