Hack4Growth, an international contest to find solutions to pressing problems of society, is organized by the Association of Vietnamese Scientists and Experts (AVSE Global) under the auspices of the State Commission for Overseas Vietnamese under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
2021 Hack4Growth Australia kicked off in Australia
As planned, the Hack4Growth contest will be carried out concurrently in Australia, North America, Europe, Japan and Vietnam.
The first contest was held in 2020 successfully with the participation of about 500 contestants and 150 high-quality projects in various fields.
In order to incubate and promote creative innovative solutions, contributing to the development of the country, the second contest named Hack4growth 2021 Unlimited is expected to find useful solutions to solve practical problems in provinces and cities of Vietnam.
With the slogan "Start Local - Rise Regional - Grow Global", the contest calls on Vietnamese people around the world to join hands to find solutions to local problems.
Specifically, the program seeks ideas for seven fields, including climate change, tourism, agriculture, social equality, urban development, education, health safety and community.
Particularly, the contest welcomes all applications, whether a new project is at the idea stage, a demo product or a prototype.
This year's contest is open to all candidates aged 18 and over who have a start-up idea that matches the goals of the contest season.
Recently, the launch event of the contest, which was organized by the Vietnam Startup Promotion Network in Australia (SVF-AU) and the Vietnam-Australia Innovation Network (NIC-AU), attracted the attention of many people from the overseas Vietnamese student community at home and abroad.
At this event, an inspirational seminar was held online. The Organizing Committee invited 3 young speakers, famous figures in startup in Vietnam and the world, to share experiences to help young people to be more determined on the path to assert themselves./.
