At the beginning of December 2019, Vietnam Innovative Startup Accelerator (VIISA) announced the completion of the sixth batch of its four month acceleration program with its ‘Investment Day’. The invitation-only event welcomed more than 100 active investors, corporations and startup community builders.
At the beginning of the event, Mr. Hieu Vo, Board Member and CFO at VIISA, said: “Batch 6 is special because it marks the third anniversary of VIISA as a company. We started with high expectations in terms of program quality improvement as well as creating more value added for founders. That means the program is getting tougher and more demanding for participants and operators too.
“Apart from very intuitive selection criteria that all applying startups have to go through, the program has introduced a new development measurement method which helps us to capture the progress of startups that are accepted into VIISA.”
During the first part of the Investment Day, VIISA showcased their portfolio and alumni startups via a keynote speech from management representative of Base.vn, a portfolio investee of VIISA and the two fund-raising pitches from alumni startups. A practical yet inspiring presentation on technology application on business management was shared with various stories from Base.vn themselves.
