The Proof of Concept (PoC) Competition bootcamp gathered 24 eco-entrepreneurs, 8 environmental sessions, and 1 common green goal in Ho Chi Minh City’s Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel over the second week of the month (10 to 13 October 2014).
Shortlisted applicants will then have to attend a ‘bootcamp’ to develop their ideas. These 24 stand a chance to get grant funding of up to VND 1,000,000,000 per entrepreneur.
Prior to the launch of the Vietnam Climate Innovation Centre, the PoC competition will see an exciting arrangement of eco-business proposals and grant funding of up to VND 1,000,000,000 (around USD $48,000).
