About the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation
The CEI is Fulbright’s very first university center, established in summer 2019 to empower future entrepreneurs and innovators to go after Vietnam and the region’s greatest challenges and opportunities.
The CEI’s mandate is to work with future entrepreneurs and innovators broadly, including but not limited to Fulbright’s full-time student body.

As the youngest unit of Fulbright, the CEI is still very much a startup within a startup university, and there is near unlimited potential for growth and impact.
Since its inception in 2019, the CEI has made rapid progress in cultivating entrepreneurial talent, both in terms of Fulbright students and the broader youth population in Vietnam.

The CEI has also engaged over 50 companies, investors, and educators in Vietnam and across the region to bring expertise to our students and community.
In the upcoming year, the CEI is seeking to accelerate its growth further and expand to other areas of innovation. Priorities are likely to include :

Within the entrepreneurship pillar, expanding the Venture Fellows Program to include new focus tracks, and creating new venture building / startup acceleration programs.
