Dr. Vo Thanh Hai, DTU Vice-provost and chairman of the organizing committee, said: “A lot of submissions originated from the very needs of society and of meeting the criteria “Vietnamese people use Vietnamese goods”. This should be encouraged and praised. It takes much time to realize business concepts and apply them to real life. Therefore, you all should have very detailed plans which need more investment. DTU will actively provide you with support so that you can complete your plan soon.”

Winning the heart of the jury with “Code for Vietnam.com”, CFV won a second place award. Two third prizes fell to the Businessman team’s versatile intelligent Cradle with functions such as automatic cart pusher, seesaw, and repelling insects through sound wave frequency, and to Viet Handmade team’s business idea “Hand-made product Manufacturing and Trading.”

Tran Minh Da Thao, a DTU student of K17 PSU QNH2, said: “As we are going to graduate from the university, we foster dreams to start up a business from our own projects. To me, the “Startup Wheel 2014” Contest is an interesting experience. It not only helps me put knowledge and skills into practice but also to find my strengths and weaknesses while conducting the project. We hope to receive financial support from local businesses so that we can successfully conduct our project.”

Duy Tan University will help winning teams find investors to develop their products and promote them in the local community. Hopefully, with this support from DTU, students will have much more motivation to make their business dreams come true.
