VietChallenge

VietChallenge is the largest annual startup competition for founders of Vietnamese heritage and non-Vietnamese founders aiming to expand their business into the Vietnamese market.

Since 2015, the three-round competition has helped 600+ startups raise $10 million+ and make connections with 100+ investor networks. Throughout its previous seasons, VietChallenge awarded contestants $200,000 in cash with no strings attached.

In 2021, for the first time, VietChallenge will host its final round of competition in New York City. Here participants of VietChallenge 2021 will compete not only for the cash prize of $15,000 but also for an additional $25,000+ from our investor alliance. We will also designate a large portion of the event to raise funds for children and students in Vietnam affected by COVID-19.

VietChallenge is hosted by VietChallenge, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Massachusetts seeking to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit of young Vietnamese and foster business synergies through mentorship, networking, and access to funding.
