Drop Deck, a platform supporting startups in finding and evaluating venture capital opportunities, won the “Start Jerusalem 2017” startup challenge. 

The final round of the contest in Viet Nam took place in Ha Noi on Sunday with dramatic competition among the six best teams from across the country.

Following nearly two months of competition, the six best teams - Drop Deck, Finsify, Repoto and Putatu, as well as Abby Card and SafeSai - went into the final round.

Along with Drop Deck, the other five teams also won similar awards and certification from the competition.

The Embassy of Israel in Viet Nam along with the National Agency for Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialisation Development under the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Business Studies and Assistance Centre organised the contest.

Start Jerusalem is a global competition organised by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Jerusalem Development Authority, which brings together startups from different countries to compete for the opportunity to take part in a five-day innovation experience in Jerusalem, Israel -- one of the world’s leading tech ecosystems.

The startup competition was organised to find a winner for Start Jerusalem 2017, which takes place in November.

Israeli Ambassador Nadav Eshcar said this year’s teams surprised him with their good quality and useful products.

The contest affirmed the support of the Israeli government and its startup community for Vietnamese startups. — VNS
