Prizes will be awarded at US$1,000 for 1st place, US$750 for 2nd place, and US$500 for 3rd place.

The 1st place team’s leader will be given a US$5,000 scholarship for the University of Hawaii (Vietnam) Executive MBA Program.

They will also receive a fully-funded trip to attend the GIST Startup Camps, an event dedicated to Vietnamese entrepreneurs.

This year’s GIST Startup Camp is set to take place from September 27 to 30 in Ho Chi Minh City and will host businessmen and top instructors from a number of US universities.
