Leading in enterprise!
Each year we run a business competition called Saigon Enterprise Challenge in conjunction with ISHCMC and British Vietnamese International School.
This years competition was held on 27th April 2016 at 5pm The event was held at BIS in An Phu with 12 student teams of 6 students per team from the three schools.
This competition is open to all sixth form students. Each team receives VND 1,000,000 as a commencement loan from the school to start up a business and sell their product or service either inside or outside the school. Each team has to donate at least 10% of their profits to charity. In practice many give all their profits to charity. They have 8 weeks to do this. For the actual competition each team has to design a trade stall and deliver a short presentation about their product and team.
