Startup Wheel 2020 has attracted the participation of more than 1,900 startups from Vietnam and 19 countries on 5 continents.

Startup Wheel is the largest and most prestigious startup competition in Vietnam and has been successfully organized for 7 years. In 2020, despite the Covid-19, Startup Wheel 2020 still maintained the spirit of connecting local and international startup ecosystems together, in order to create a solid launchpad in supporting startup communities to recover quickly and develop stronger when stepping in the “new normal” period.

How did Startup Wheel 2020 overcome challenges due to Covid-19’s influence?

In the context of the Covid-19’s influence during the first 6 months of 2020, most of the events and competitions at large and small scale in Vietnam and worldwide had announced postponements. BSSC, the organizer of Startup Wheel, as a leader in supporting the Vietnam startup ecosystem, was the pioneer moving forward. To be specific, BSSC had implemented a series of practical activities in a timely manner to support the Vietnamese startup community overcoming difficulties. Besides, they reached out to partners across VIetnam and outside the country to find more resources for Startups/ SMEs in the country.

With the statement “This is not the time to go ALONE, this is the time to go TOGETHER”, Ms. Nguyen Thi Dieu Hang – CEO of BSSC had fastly leaded BSSC to carry out two programs in parallel: “Mentoring 1on1” and “Help Startup”, which bring timely and practical help to startups: pointing out problems and suggesting quick responses, connecting resources to overcome difficulties, and encouraging startups to keep the spirit of “startup warriors”. Nearly 100 Startups/ SMEs received direct support through the two programs in the extremely stressful and difficult period caused by Covid-19.

The preliminary round of Startup Wheel competition had been kicked off nationwide

By February 2020, BSSC already knew that the whole country was going to cope with the Covid-19 by practicing social distances. And this period was also the important stage of Startup Wheel 2020: launching the competition and kicking off the preliminary round.

In the situation that the whole country was fighting with the Covid-19, all activities for communication and the preliminary round of Startup Wheel 2020 were carried out online and offline interlaced, but still strictly complied with the direction of the pandemic prevention of the Prime Minister. More than ever, at that time, BSSC totally realized the importance of support from partners.

Therefore, in the first 6 months of 2020, BSSC had strongly expanded its network nationwide and internationally to reach out to resources: signing MOU and working closely with 35 international partners, more than 200 local partners who are Venture Capitalists, Incubators, Investors, media partners, big corporations … Thanks to the support from the partners, BSSC had run the competition successfully at the first stage.

Startup Wheel 2020 – A solid launchpad for the startup communities to start with “the new normal” period.

With “hot heart and cold head”, despite facing many difficulties, BSSC still continued the Startup Wheel competition 2020, turning it into a solid launchpad which gathered local and International resources to support the startup communities for “the new normal” period.

After 6 months, BSSC is happy to share its initial achievement that the Startup Wheel 2020 has attracted the participation of more than 1,900 Vietnamese and International startups from 20 countries on 5 continents. And the below is the Top 100 Vietnam Track of Startup Wheel 2020:
