Zone Startups Vietnam is part of the global network of Zone Startups accelerator programs. We source forward-thinking founders and strong teams with visions to become fast-growing market leaders. We provide hands-on strategic and tactical guidance for startups looking to drive market validation and customer acquisition, as well as access to investors, corporate partners, and advisors. We offer an innovation consulting practice that lets corporate clients explore and embrace new ideas and technologies alongside leading-edge startups. For high-potential startups, we can provide seed capital and support for future financing efforts. Zone Startups is operated by Ryerson Futures, a Toronto-based accelerator. In 2013, Ryerson launched its first acceleration partnership with the Bombay Stock Exchange in Mumbai.
