GameHub, a first-of-its-kind program aimed at discovering promising game projects in Vietnam, is set to debut as part of the Vietnam GameVerse 2024 event. Eligible projects will enter the pitching round in April, where investors will evaluate and select the top 5 teams to advance to the final.

Every team reaching the final stage will be awarded VND10 million in cash along with a media package valued at VND100 million on VnExpress. In addition to the financial rewards, the top 5 projects will receive invaluable exposure by showcasing their products directly to potential investors. Furthermore, they may secure additional support, such as financial aid and training courses, from prominent entities like VNG and Google. These resources aim to bolster project development and facilitate extensive public outreach.
