What is the Young Entrepreneurs Competition?

Vietnamese students consistently outperform their peers in advanced countries yet Vietnam has one of the lowest financial literacy rates globally. Financial education and entrepreneurship are not introduced until university.

Little Wallet, a Singapore Fintech startup backed by Visa and winner of the Tech In Asia Startup Arena, is here to make a difference for the next generation. We have developed a Financial Literacy program led by a team of esteemed global financial experts, including Harvard MBA graduates, experienced bankers, CEOs, and university professor. This program adheres to US national standards for Financial Literacy but is tailored to suit the unique Vietnamese financial system.

As part of our FinLit program, we are proud to present The Young Entrepreneurs Competition for high school students. This competition offers an exceptional opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the world of startups, business models, and market dynamics. Dreaming of becoming the next Steve Jobs or Elon Musk? This competition invites you to submit your ideas and showcase your entrepreneurial spirit!

At Little Wallet, we believe in empowering the youth of Vietnam with the necessary financial knowledge and entrepreneurial skills to shape their own futures!

From Little Wallet with Love <3
