About Us

The Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI) is Fulbright University Vietnam’s first University Center.

The CEI is Fulbright’s flagship effort to embed entrepreneurship and innovation into the core of Fulbright’s culture and academic program. The CEI also offers impactful learning opportunities on entrepreneurship and innovation for stakeholders across Vietnamese society and the region, including non-Fulbright students, professionals, startups, companies, and members of the general public. In time, as both the CEI and Fulbright University Vietnam grow, the CEI will incubate and accelerate ventures going after Vietnam and the region’s toughest challenges.

Our physical facility is comprised of a co-working space and a makerspace for basic fabrication activities, located on the 5th floor of our Crescent Plaza campus at 105 Ton Dat Tien, Tan Phu, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City.

Mission

Fulbright’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation empowers entrepreneurs and innovators to go after Vietnam and the region’s biggest challenges.

Context

The Vietnamese economy and startup ecosystem are booming. Vietnam will grow economically at a breathtaking pace in the coming years. Entrepreneurs starting companies and innovators developing new products have helped to uplift Vietnamese society, be it empowering individuals economically, reducing reliance on fossil fuels, or improving access to education and health care.

Yet, for Vietnam, major existential challenges loom on the horizon. Vietnam is one of the world’s most at-risk countries in terms of climate change, Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi continue to grow rapidly while already struggling with air pollution and congestion, and advances in automation and artificial intelligence threaten Vietnam’s manufacturing labor force. As a university that aims to cultivate the next generation of ethical leaders and changemakers of Vietnam and the region, Fulbright is committed to empowering aspiring and current entrepreneurs and innovators—both our students and beyond—to tackle our society’s greatest challenges.
