International Startup Campus


The International Startup Campus is a collaboration between the Universities Halle-Jena-Leipzig (Unibund Mitteldeutschland) to support the internationalization of startups.

In 2020 Vietnam’s growth rate hit a high of 7% making it one of the top growth economies in the region and in the world. Vietnam’s macro-economic and socio-political stability, increasing purchasing power of the 95-milion population, strong IT sector as well as the EU-Vietnam free trade agreement that recently came into force made Vietnam an attractictive market for foreign Startups, SMEs and investors. Beyond this, Vietnam has emerged as a regional tech startup hub in Southeast Asia with investments worth approximately US$815 million that provides Startups with many opportunities for business development there.
