It is an initiative of the Hanoi Youth Union, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Vietnam and AngelHack Vietnam. The organisers, together with the participation of many experts, will establish online channels offering contestants opportunities to take part in discussions, team-building and the use of advanced technology throughout the competition.

Contestants will send their finished projects, along with a 2-minute video giving an overview of their ideas, to the organisers from now until April 16.

Across three days between April 17-19, participants will present their projects online before a jury panel, which then will announce the three best projects on April 24.

The three winning projects will receive development support worth 2,000 USD each before being released to the market. In addition, the top 10 will be able to register on the fundraising platform https://jong.ventures.
