The event also provides a platform to honor 10 outstanding creative ideas and products of Hanoi’s women.
Chairwoman of Hanoi Women Union Le Thi Kim Anh said over the past three years, Hanoi Women Union at various levels have been actively implementing the project to support women in Hanoi to start their own businesses in the 2018-2020 period with substantial measures, in turn inspiring women to startup and realize their potential.
In the 2018 - 2020 period, the city has provided support for 1,750 women to create their businesses; 157,473 getting access to loans worth a combined of VND6.2 trillion via trust fund of the Union with banks and credit institutions.
The project has been a success as it created motivation for Hanoi’s women in starting up business and promoting innovation in various fields, at the same time enhancing efficiency in production and businesses. This helped them increase their income and create jobs for thousands of people.
Also during this period, nearly 200 outstanding projects have been honored by Hanoi Women Union at the Startup Day every year, including 14 projects getting prize at national level.
In 2020, eight projects from Hanoi Women Union were selected to qualify for the final round at national level, while 15 projects were chosen to get funding and realize their ideas worth nearly VND1 billion.
