Superteam Vietnam is officially in the Education system at FPT Polytechnic
We've recently partnered with FPT Polytechnic University to launch an Internship Course for more than 150 students. We present to you a 2.5 months test pilot internship program course which is only open to final year Computer Science students. Students who finish this course will earn 5 credits equivalent to 1 course.
Students are broken into groups of 25 per class with 6 professors and 6 Superteam members for mentoring. Students will select projects from a list of ideas from https://build.superteam.fun/ideas together with other ideas and assign them to groups to implement, with supervision, and support from mentors.
Vietnam Creator DAO
On the last day of the quarter, VCD was sitting together with SqrDAO and XomNFT to discuss the outlook of NFT area in the last quarter của the year. More than 50 people tuned in and we had a chance to share about NFT scene on Solana (with MadLads, xNFT, cNFT, pNFT were the highlights) and guild to launch collections on Solana with Metaplex.
Vietnam Creator DAO loves MadLads. One of the directions VCD advices projects in our network is to follow MadLads's path and build with xNFT. In September, VCD along with XomNFT created a community for Lads holders in Vietnam named MadLads Vietnam. What MadLads Vietnam is doing is to spread out MadLads images via content and community events and recruit potential NFT founders who can build with xNFT.

What is Superteam?
Superteam is a network of operators, devs & grantees working on promising Solana projects.
Simply put, it is a gated Discord server for those who satisfy the membership criteria. There’s no treasury, take-rate/commissions, or token sale. From its inception, Superteam has chosen to be a collective of sovereigns over a sovereign collective. All members may participate as much or as little as they wish, including the core team. Any revenue generated is captured by the individual members or teams that self-organize and win a bounty, secure a grant or venture funding for their ideas. The community is the product. And members have exclusive access to the product.
