Social & Environmental Entrepreneurship

Start your own social or environmental venture with the full support of a local project developer & company builder.

Why only volunteer for an existing project if you can start your own social or environmental venture to create a lasting impact in form of your own company?

Come to Danang, the fastest growing City in Southeast Asia and join an environment of like minded and driven people to start your own social venture and turn it into a sustainable company together with Evergreen Labs, a social and environmental project developer and company builder. We will provide you with all the necessary support to turn your idea into reality: Visa application, incorporation, accounting, human resources, web development, marketing & sales support, office space and an extensive support network to local authorities, NGOs, private and governmental support agencies.

If you don't have a project idea but the passion and drive of a true entrepreneur, then simply pick one of our "shelf businesses". Evergreen Labs has developed a series of projects that need a co-founder to take it to the next level. Currently, we are looking for a co-founder for projects related to: Green roofs, solar installations, modular buildings, polymer recycling, renewable energy, e-mobility solutions and organic food. 

Evergreen Labs also supports the multiplication of existing solutions to new regions through cooperations. If you know of a great social or environmental project that is not yet in Central Vietnam, we would be happy to co-create a Vietnam-branch together with you and the originator.

With this program, we aim to provide a value added solution to all high potential candidates that truly want to create something great while boosting their CV through hands on entrepreneurial experience and potentially a successful and profitable company. 

Why Danang? Central Vietnam offers one of the most cost competitive professional environments in the world. Countless web development companies and other outsourcing providers are already using the state of the art infrastructure and educational level of young, motivated, entrepreneurial Vietnamese minds to create something great with a limited budget. The thriving start-up ecosystem and increasing investments into the region (ranging from aid & development funds to private venture capital) provide the ideal environment for your business once you have established a proof of concept. 

No more excuses, start your future as an entrepreneur now!
