18:29 | 07/03/2016
Today, KPMG in Vietnam - one of the leading “Big 4” professional services firms – and the Centre for Support and Development of Vietnamese Young Entrepreneurs announced the launch of KPMG NEXT, a unique programme designed to fast track Vietnamese private businesses and entrepreneurs.

Selected participants will receive intensive training through a series of bootcamp workshops to help them meet the myriad of complex challenges they face as they continue to grow into a sustainable and competitive business.

In addition, KPMG NEXT offers participants access to unique one-on-one mentoring from an expert advisor from KPMG Vietnam.

The programme culminates in a facilitated workshop in Singapore where entrepreneurs will network with Global and Regional business leaders as well as visit innovative companies such as KPMG Singapore, Google and LinkedIn.

“With the right networks, advice and training, we believe that a good company can become even greater. KPMG NEXT allows private businesses here in Vietnam, to better understand the challenges critical to success, so that they can take on the world,” said Warrick Cleine, chairman and CEO of KPMG in Vietnam and Cambodia.

“This is especially important in 2016 as Vietnam moves further into the ASEAN Economic Community and adopts further reforms under the TPP and other trade agreements. Vietnamese companies cannot ignore these challenges and opportunities,” Cleine added.

“We are excited to work side by side with KPMG on this exciting project to develop and enhance the capabilities of Vietnamese entrepreneurs.

“We strongly believe that The KPMG NEXT programme will enable Vietnamese businesses to review their current growth strategy and tactics; understand the latest fund-raising processes, financial management and operational management, with the objective of transforming their business to a professionally managed entity with clearly articulated objectives,” said Nguyen Doan Thang, secretary general of the Vietnam Young Entrepreneurs Association, and director of the Centre for Support and Development of Vietnamese Young Entrepreneurs.

Applications for KPMG NEXT are currently open and will close on April 14, 2016, with the bootcamp workshops to commence in April 2016.
