As part of our continuing effort to support innovation and to help build a strong and vibrant startup ecosystem in Vietnam, Kambria and TomoChain hosted “Fueling the Innovation Economy: Startup Pitch and Blockchain Networking” on November 15 in Ho Chi Minh City. In this article, you will get to meet the Kambria startup pitch winners.

Our team received an overwhelming number of applications in a very short amount of time. And the quality of the projects was extremely high, which we were excited to see. In the end, seven tech startups representing various industries were selected to pitch their business idea in front of top global VCs, with a potential opportunity to receive funding for their ideas.
