In collaboration with the Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), the ADOC project is offering free E-commerce courses, which has attracted many young people from Hanoi to sign up. The ADOC Award, an online entrepreneurship contest, has further stimulated the youth to come up with many creative ideas.
For instance, “Sweet Love,” a website selling perfume established by Ms. Hanh, is a very competitive venture proposal. Perfume is in great demand in Viet Nam, but there aren’t many shops selling perfume. At the same time, the market is filled with counterfeit and substandard products, which fail to satisfy consumer needs. With the right promotion, a website selling quality products at a reasonable price should do well. Ms. Hanh’s website offers a variety of products. Since a bottle of perfume is easy to transport and the price is quite affordable, Ms. Hanh’s business model is highly suitable on an e-commerce platform.
As someone who has enjoyed travelling since she was a little girl, Ms. Huong always paid attention to the people and things she met when travelling with her parents.
On entering college, she discovered that it was possible to turn travel planning into a lifetime career. While receiving training from ADOC, she began designing her own website that provides information on cheap flight tickets and affordable accommodations. By building this website she has also realized her own dream.
Ms. Huyan has loved playing house since she was a child. She enjoyed using paper or other materials to build her future house and make scaled-down versions of real furniture. However, she did not know how to share her hobby with others. It was not until after she came into contact with ADOC that things changed. Through ADOC training and its online contest, Ms. Huyan set up probably Viet Nam’s only website that sells “scaleddown houses.” She believed that she can share these beautiful things with others around the world through the Internet.
When presenting her project, Ms. Huyan said, “Although they are just small model houses and this is a small website, they represent an unrealized dream.” With the assistance of the ADOC project, Ms. Huyan finally was able to take her first step in making her dream come true.
