Start a startup

You can start a startup by making a Co-Founding Agreement to start a startup project or by registering a startup with your co-founders. If your co-founder is a foreigner joining the founding of the company, he or she needs to apply for an Investment License to be allowed to start up in Vietnam. You should also look for mentors, advisors in areas such as strategy, finance, legal, marketing ... to get the best professional support for you and your startup.

You also need to equip yourself with the necessary legal knowledge throughout the startup process. The advice of Startup LAW is: Please bring legal documents, agreements, and regulations into the daily activities of the startup on a regular basis. Develop a habit of consulting lawyers for any of your decisions. This is a great way to protect the success of your startup, thereby avoiding potential conflicts and risks.

Intellectual Property

A startup's most valuable asset is often its intellectual property. The most popular trademark (trademark), followed by software, is an invention or a creative technical solution.
Talk about the startup's brand (trademark). This is an asset of great value that all startups have. This could be the name of your project, your company name, or simply the name of your software. Trademarks will be protected exclusively for those who register first instead of those who use them first. So, you should apply for trademark protection for your startup as soon as possible.


Most startups today develop a software. Fortunately, the software is NOT REQUIRED to register and is copyrighted for its creator and / or owner. However, registering software copyrights is a must for you to use your Copyright Registration Certificate as proof of your ownership.


You can commercially exploit your IP assets to offset your investments by selling, franchising, or using the IP to contribute capital to another company. It is important to note that you need to have a clear written agreement with software engineers (dev) and your designer (designer) to determine that the ownership of intellectual property created by them belongs to your startup is often owned by them personally.
