7th Local Selection Panel

On July 16, Endeavor organized the 7th Local Selection Panel with a hybrid of offline and online panels. We had two panels in Ho Chi Minh City and one panel composed of one panelist in Melbourne and one in Hanoi.

As usual, our candidates and panelists had insightful discussions and explored ways to grow the business to the next level and become a part of the unrival Endeavor network.A big thank you to our star panelists:

• Tran Trong Kien (Chairman – Thien Minh Group)
• Dinh Anh Huan (Chairman – Seedcom)
• Vu Quang Thinh (Chief Investment Officer/Managing Director – Dynam Capital)
• To Hong Trang (Co-founder – Digiworld, Board Member – Endeavor Vietnam)
• Chad Ovel (Partner – Mekong Capital)
• Pham Vu Thanh Giang (Co-founder/CXO – Genetica, Board Member – Endeavor Vietnam)

The Local Selection Panel (LSP) process serves the dual objectives of evaluating the candidates and providing candidates with feedback on how to improve their business model as well as how to perfect their business pitch. A panel composed of mentors who conduct group interviews with candidates and deliberate at the end who should advance to the International Selection Panel (ISP).

At the end of the selection, we have selected 30Shine into the local network and continue to support them in the journey to join the global Endeavor network.
