Ho Chi Minh City is looking for innovative and applied startup projects that can enhance management capacity in the public sector. The first program, called Gov.Star, was announced by the Department of Science and Technology of Ho Chi Minh City on April 3. The objective of Gov.Star is to find innovative models and solutions that utilize technology and digital transformation to address issues related to managing public affairs activities within departments, People’s Committees, and other entities in the city.

Individuals, project groups, and businesses with innovative solutions applicable to managing public affairs activities at state management agencies, schools, hospitals, and more are encouraged to participate in Gov.Star. Selected models and solutions will receive financial support and incubation to further develop and introduce them to departments and localities for practical pilot implementation.

The selection process for Gov.Star involves four phases, where project teams are evaluated based on criteria like applicability, capacity for practical implementation, technology application, creativity, economic efficiency, and social impact. Through the program, the District 1 People’s Committee has already piloted the application of Geographic Information System (GIS) for tasks such as granting business licenses and regulating temporary sidewalk use.

Participants in the program will have the opportunity to receive training, advice, and support to connect with state management agencies to understand their needs better and refine their technology solutions and business models.
