To foster the startup ecosystem, the national program "Initiative for Startup Ecosystem in Vietnam until 2025" (Program 844) has made some early progress.
The Prime Minister approved several new items in 2021 to broaden the activities within the startup ecosystem globally. Since then, several initiatives have been developed to build a Vietnamese overseas network and link the Vietnamese ecosystem with professionals, consultants, and specialists.
After being halted by a pandemic for two years, Vietnam's Ministry of Science and Technology (NATEC) is gathering pace to advance and forge cooperative connections with partners.
These initiatives will focus on collaborating with the prosperous booming population in the US to increase the capabilities of various actors in the Vietnamese innovation startup ecosystem.
