Cooperation opportunities between Korean startups and KGCCI member companies




Under the new Korean government startups will continue to play an important role in Korea. Therefore we look forward to our upcoming KGCCI event “Startups meet Grownups” on June, 13th 2017!

At this event we want to make KGCCI member companies (the “grownups”) familiar with the startup szene in Korea and connect you with innovative Korean startups from the health care and IT / tech area. A cooperation with startups can become a window to a new world: for market intelligence, for innovation, for developping new business models and a different business culture.

Therefore join us for the occasion to explore the Korean startup szene and meet some exciting startup companies.
