The National Startup Festival, an annual event that celebrates and fosters innovation and entrepreneurship among students, provided a platform for young innovators from various educational institutions across Vietnam. This year's festival was particularly notable for the impressive range of projects that highlighted the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of Vietnamese students.

ZestAroma, developed by a team of HaUI students, stood out for its innovative approach to environmental protection and agricultural waste reduction. The project aims to convert citrus peels, often discarded as waste, into valuable products such as essential oils and charcoal tablets.
