“To establish a successful startup, first and foremost you need awareness, creative initiative and a thirst for new ideas,” said Hero of Labour and Distinguished Teacher Le Cong Co, DTU President, at the launch ceremony. “Secondly, you need to be responsible for your own work. Thirdly, and most importantly for startups, is the vital aspiration and passion to achieve success for yourselves and for the future of Vietnam. At the same time, knowledgeable, experienced lecturers are essential to mentor and encourage students to dedicate themselves completely to their projects. With these qualities, innovative workgroups will be able to develop their own unique startup projects and create new and exciting products. DTU has organized this contest to promote entrepreneurship and sow the seeds for  healthy incubation and development.”
 
Selected projects will be required to guarantee feasibility, optimum cost, technological prowess, unique advantages, together with quality production, manufacturing and deployment of the product or service. In this way, DTU plans to create an innovative and creative startup environment that can become part of the existing Danang startup ecosystem.
