Our Approach, Method and Strategy

1. Universal Design for Learning Entrepreneurship

We aim to make entrepreneurship education more accessible and give everyone an equal opportunity to pursue the program. 

2. Take Advantage of Local Resources

Understanding the local economy – it is really important for businesses and local decision-makers to understand the real strengths and opportunities in the local economy itself and as that local economy relates to the broader economy. Smaller businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, helping them grow will be crucial to our future economic success as a nation.

3. The Power of Research Universities  

The universities’ role in the local economy is both broad and critically important. "Building high-quality research and teaching universities that are innovative and relevant to market demands is essential." (Asia Development Bank)

4. Pay It Forward: Ignite the True Spirit of Entrepreneurship

Inspired by Pay-it-forward culture, we proudly build a support community and mentorship program within the program. 

30,000 new learners complete Entrepreneurship 101 Program

Lần Đầu Khởi Nghiệp (Entrepreneurship 101) is an open and accessible course for everyone. 
The course is tailor-made for Vietnamese which brings out the best local practices; the content is well prepared for non-business related people and underserved communities. The course is coming soon in October 2021, in Vietnamese audio and Vietnamese/English subtitles.

1,500 national university research results are commercialized

JOMO Research is the hybrid research center to connect practical research, patterns, useful resources from universities to business operation in Vietnam. This is a 10-year project to help Vietnam startups/businesses understand and take advantage of the local economy from public resources. JOMO Research is coming soon in September 2021
