HCMC – Vietnamese startups specializing in the technology sector will soon benefit from an international startup accelerator program called Zone Startups.

Zone Startups Vietnam, a cooperation program launched by Toronto-based Ryerson Futures Inc., has partnered with entities in Vietnam, including UniBrands and VinaCapital, and individual investors, such as Nguyen Trung Tin, general director of Trung Thuy Group, and Tieu Yen Trinh, general director of TalentNet, to execute the global project of Zone Startups.

Speaking at the signing ceremony on August 9, which also marked VinaCapital’s participation in the program as its founder, Alan Lynse, a representative of Ryerson Futures and the Zone Startups global project, noted that Zone Startups Vietnam was responsible for finding startup projects related to technology and providing innovative and potential software to Vietnam, the region and the world.
