VGP - The Ha Noi municipal People's Committee in coordination with VPBank in Ha Noi on October 10 launched the city's start-up ecosystem portal and a large-scale co-working space in support of the start-up community at the VPBank building, which is expected to connect start-ups with international firms, thus creating new jobs.

Start-up ecosystem portal

The StartupCity.vn portal is built with the aim of creating an online platform to connect start-up business opportunities in a simple and systematic manner. The portal will also serve as a useful tool for investors to seek investment opportunities in Vietnam.

In addition, through StartupCity, start-up enterprises can present their projects and call for investment while exploring new business opportunities and following technology tendencies and issues of concern.

The start-up ecosystem portal, which is automatic and free of charge, is developed under the guidance of experts from Israel, a nation famous for its successful start-up nation model.

The co-working space is expected to provide enterprises with the most high-class office space in Vietnam at reasonable costs. In addition, at UP@VPBank, start-ups and innovation enterprises will have opportunities to meet, work and connect directly with investors and supporting services.

So far, 130 enterprises have registered to work at the co-working space and 63 have received funds from VPBank.

VPBank has pledged to spend at least US$1 million to implement solutions in support of the start-up community in 2017-2018.

The UP@VPBANK hi-end working space is located on the 21st floor of VP Tower, 89 Láng Hạ. UP Co-working Space was developed by entrepreneurs pioneering the start-up movement in Viet Nam.
