HCM CITY (Biz Hub)  — The HCM City Young Businesspeople Association (YBA) and the Business Start-up Support Centre (BSSC) have launched a community project to provide business expertise to minimise risks to some 10,000 young entrepreneurs starting businesses in the next five years.

"Every Businessman-A Teacher" will also provide 1,000 students with intensive training in starting a business, while 100 successful entrepreneurs will support a start-up each.

Speaking at the launch, Truong Ly Hoang Phi, BSSC director and YBA general secretary, said the project is aimed at stimulating entrepreneurship among young people in the city and create close links between them and successful business people.

"The project conveys a message that each young business person can become a teacher of a young business start-up generation.

"[Besides], each young start-up business person needs a teacher to understand, share, and support in the initial period."

The two also launched a business start-up competition titled Startup Wheel 2014 as part of the programme to create a platform for young people to present innovative ideas, promote start-ups and develop a strong start-up community. — VNS
