The event saw the participation of Vietnamese and Australian officials and over 100 experts, investors, and investment funds from the two countries.

Minister of Science and Technology Huynh Thanh Dat said that the event is an opportunity to promote the image of Vietnam's open and dynamic creative start-up ecosystem. It’s also a bridge connecting businesses and organizations with international resources around the world.

Vietnam calls on overseas Vietnamese, intellectuals, entrepreneurs, technology experts, and foreign start-ups to come to Vietnam and work with Vietnamese partners to solve local and global challenges, he said, adding Australia is a potential technology and capital market.

The minister said Vietnam’s start-up ecosystem in the coming time needs linkages with regional and international systems, particularly those with experiences and resources like Australia’s.

At the event, innovative start-ups had an opportunity to present to Australian venture capital companies such as Magic Edutech Group PTY LTD, Cyberkid, VSEC, Hana Gold, and Treeotek. Representatives from agencies and organizations exchanged experiences to improve their support to start-ups.
