“I’ve had some really interesting discussions with students at the Foreign Trade University, sharing some great ideas from the Vintegration competition and learning a lot from their experiences. I truly believe this will give a big boost to entrepreneurship, showing that anyone, at any age, can succeed with enough passion and determination,” remarked Mr. Ngoc Son, a lecturer at the Foreign Trade University.

The first season of Vintegration has wrapped up, providing students with valuable chances to deepen their business knowledge, gain practical experience, and develop important skills needed to join Vietnam’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs.

Best wishes to the startups from season 1 as they continue with their current projects, and we’re excited to meet other startups in season 2 of Vintegration!”
