After winning the competitive JUNCTIOnxHanoi challenge, Phạm Minh Tuấn, Vũ Tùng Dương, Lưu Quang Tùng, Lâm Hà Thái, Hoàng Sơn Tùng from Infinito Phoenix (formerly Team Phoenix) will be representing Vietnam at the event and IBL and Infinito are there to support them! The team of 2nd and 3rd-year students from the University of Technology, Hanoi National University, are being sponsored by Infinito in their pursuit of winning the ultimate prize in Finland.
In preparing for their trip to Finland, the team has been researching and brainstorming for new ideas to meet the tougher tracks of this competition. The technology framework used in the upcoming competition is quite different and the team has worked hard to gear up for the challenge.
Infinito Phoenix is not alone in their preparation for JUNCTION 2018 as they have the support of IBL and Infinito. As a co-sponsor, Infinito is providing technical support as well as financial support for their journey to Finland.
This support is above and beyond the support already provided by IBL and Infinito at hackathon JUNCTIONxHanoi 2018. In addition to IBL’s Platinum sponsorship of JUNCTIONxHanoi 2018, Infinito and IBL also organized seminars to help the team clearly understand the track and clarify technical concerns. Also, the team received wonderful and enthusiastic mentoring by Infinito’s Product Manager, Jackie Pham, and the rest of the Infinito team at the event who assisted during the 48 stressful hours.
Vietnam is our headquarters and home so we are always looking to inspire our country’s young talents through our various initiatives. Infinito Phoenix is extremely honored to represent Vietnam in Finland and we are proud to support the team in their pursuit of greatness.
