Themed "Adaptation - Transformation - Breakthrough", Techfest 2020 connects local and international entities to advance the startup community amid hardships caused by COVID-19. Vietnam currently has 2,000 startups.
Pham Dung Nam, Director of The Office of the “Support Innovative Startup Ecosystem in Vietnam until 2025” National Program, said, “From now until 2025, we will establish a support network for startups at regional and national levels. Network centers will coordinate resources from domestic and foreign supporters to empower startups.”
