IPP Innovation Accelerator – Request for Proposals
Innovation Partnership Program (IPP) is an Official Development Assistance (ODA) program financed jointly by the Governments of Vietnam and Finland. The program is in its second phase running through 2014-2018. IPP targets positive socio-economic impact and long-term benefits for the Vietnamese innovation system. The program works with key national and international partners as well as top innovation teams to support Vietnam’s 2020 economic goals and increase the export of innovative products and services.
The IPP Innovation Accelerator provides world-class practical innovation and entrepreneurship training, connections and matching funding for resourcing the innovation projects of Vietnamese new innovative companies as well as consortiums that are developing support services for high-growth startups in Vietnam. The accelerator program is highly selective – only around 20 projects will be supported in 2015.
IPP is now requesting Proposals for the Innovation Accelerator from two types of teams. All Proposals must be in English and they must be submitted online and via post at latest on May 4th 2015.
