Along with Digital Startup ecosystem work, we always look to contribute in any other ways we can and as much as we can for different development challenges at all levels.
At recent Digital Startup Ecosystem pilot kick off tour via Da Nang, HCMC and Hanoi, we took part in many different stakeholder discussions with close to 30 different open info sessions, round tables, workshops and meetings. With this tour, combined with IPP work in past few years, we gained good perspective of most current stage of Vietnam Startup Ecosystem as a whole and in different cities, along with most recent developments in progress at different levels.
Based on some of the core challenges and development tracks in progress we composed this attached document to hopefully help in some of the Vietnam Startup Ecosystem development current challenges (If you like editable version of this or any other documents we have published, please send us a message or comment below).
Digital startup ecosystem core architecture is also based on startup development phases and ecosystem development framework.
