Vietnam-based accelerator programme VIISA announced the four startups that have made it to the fifth batch of its programme.

The programme selected the startups out of 80 applicants over a three-month due diligence and interview process.

VIISA provided participating startups with investment in cash and undisclosed amount of services such as coworking space, tools, mentoring and training, as well as access to potential investors and corporate partners.

The programme also stated that graduating startups will receive a follow-on funding of up to US$200,000 when they secure a new funding round from other investors.

“Batch 5 is all about the refined acceleration process whereas we have thoroughly fine-tuned the curriculum further to fit with Vietnam market. The new process has also enabled us to be even more flexible to work with series A to B companies but still value our contribution in helping their businesses,” said VIISA CFO Hieu Vo in a press statement.
