Vietnam hosts international start-up event E-mail

The coastal city of Da Nang in Vietnam hosted the third International Start-up Conference and Exhibition, or SURF 2018, on 29 June, attracting participants in technology, artificial intelligence (AI) and big data. The theme of the event was “linkthewaves”.

Around 2,000 attendees, including 20 investors and 30 speakers, participated in the conference and exhibition at the city’s administrative centre. A start-up pitch competition, part of the conference, is the largest in central Vietnam, and this year’s event offered a cash prize of US$6,000 for the winner. Participants had the opportunity to share experiences and ideas with start-up programmes and experts from Israel, Canada, Ireland, the UK, Finland, Singapore and Vietnam.

Deputy Chief of Mission of the Israeli Embassy in Vietnam, Doron Lebovich, said SURF 2018 marked the 25th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries. He said Israel and Da Nang, as well as the Da Nang Entrepreneurship Support Centre, had developed positive partnerships with start-up programmes, and the city’s leadership had strongly committed to building a start-up programme and ecosystem.
