The Startup Exchange 2017 will be held at the Riverside Palace in HCM City’s District 4 on August 26 with the participation of nearly 120 local and foreign startups.

As part of the Startup Day, an annual event held by the Business Startup Support centre (BSSC), there will be a playground for startups to introduce their products to customers, present their ideas to convince investors to pour money in their businesses and sell their stories to the media.

While the previous Startup Exchanges featured mostly contestants of the Startup Wheel contests, this year’s event has lured a variety of entrepreneurs.

Nguyen Thi Dieu Hang, deputy director of BSSC, said beside 60 semi-finalists of the Startup Wheel 2017, the event will be attended by nearly 60 other startups nationwide and three foreign startups, with one from the Philippines and two from South Korea.

Startup Exchange 2017 will be held simultaneously with the semi-final and final rounds of the Startup Wheel 2017 contest. In the morning, 60 semi-finalists will present their products and ideas to the jury, and top 10 contestants will go to the final in the afternoon.

The first, second and third prize winners will receive VND200 million (US$8,800), VND70 million and VND40 million respectively.
