Monthly Business Meeting: Final Pitch of the GBA Business Challenge 2023
Monday, 5:30 PM to 10:00 PM
November 6, 2023
The GBA Business Challenge was initiated by the German Business Association since 2020, with the idea to support local young talents with good, forward-thinking ideas to turn their visions into a real business, equipping them with [Entrepreneurial Tools], [Real Life Business Experience] and a [Starting Fund].
This year, we received a lot of convincing business concepts, all of which fulfilled this year’s theme of our idea targeting a [social, environmental, or sustainable] issue. After a 6-month training and evaluation process, the five most outstanding teams have finally been selected out of 50 startups from different cities across Vietnam to enter the final pitch, which will take place on Monday, 6 November 2023, at Sofitel Plaza Saigon.
