Danang kicks off Israel-backed startup course for local entrepreneurs

A course has been launched in the central Vietnamese city of Danang to provide local entrepreneurs a better understanding on incubator and startup.

The course, jointly organized by the Danang Startup Network Coordinating Council and the Embassy of Israel in Vietnam, was kicked off on July 11.

With guest speakers from the Israeli Agency for International Development Cooperation and the MASHAV Carmel Training Center (MCTC), it focuses on such topics as business model development, the spirit of innovation, and a number of management approaches to accelerate innovation.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (R) talks about the challenges for a startup business at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2016 at Stanford University in Palo Alto on June 24, 2016

According to Lee Singer, deputy Israeli Ambassador to Vietnam, this is the first-ever course on startup organized by Israeli experts in the Southeast Asian country.

The course is expected to be held in other major cities, with the aim of helping young entrepreneurs to have a better understanding on startup and human resources development, she said.

“We hope to contribute to the formation of the startup ecosystem in Danang,” she added.
