VN, Korean startups seek investment in smart technology

Start-ups of Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) introduced their technological products in Hanoi on March 22, in a bid to call for investments from potential investors in Vietnam and foreign countries.

This formed part of the “Global investment festival” held by the RoK-based K-ICT Born2Global Centre (B2G) and Vietnam Silicon Valley (VSV) Project.

Participating RoK firms brought to the fair smart warehouse technology for small- and medium-sized enterprises, driving risk assessment devices, and money transfer technology, among others.

Vietnamese startups focused on payment services for smartphones, online management platforms for businesses, and automatic farming technology.

On this occasion, B2G and VSV Accelerator signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation.  

A VSV representative said the event will connect Vietnamese and RoK start-ups. The Korean side can find ways to enter the Vietnamese market, while the Vietnamese side can learn experiences from its Korean partners.
