Total Marketing & Services Viet Nam is organising a contest for Vietnamese start-ups with the winner possibly going on to compete in “Startupper of the Year”, a global competition held by French oil and gas company Total S.A.

The “Startupper of the Year” contest in Viet Nam will have five prizes, with the grand prize being a cash award of VND335 million (US$14,369).

The winner will first compete in the Asia Pacific region and the winner there will travel to Paris for the global finale and a chance to meet young global entrepreneurs and experts in the field next March.

Hundreds of applications have been received so far from start-ups in sectors such as construction, IT, environment, and energy. — VNS
