Todd in Seoul 2019 NextRISE.jpg

Annyeonghaseyo 👋 We have just concluded our very first event in Korea -- Market Entry Bootcamp: Thriving in Korea’s Ecosystem and it was a huge success! Of course, it would not have been possible without all our sponsors, community partners and speakers.

To give you a bit of background, we were in Seoul for the 4th stop of our #TaiwanRocks tour! Invited by Korea International Trade Association (KITA) to represent Taiwan in the NextRise Seoul 2019 global conference, we were proud to have our very own CEO, Leroy Yau, give some insights regarding the state and trends of the Taiwan startup ecosystem. We also brought 4 awesome TW startups to exhibit at the conference!

Immediately following the conference, we organized a free bootcamp for international startups exploring the possibility of entering the Korean market. Over 80+ attendees joined us to learn more about the Korean startup ecosystem and some inside tips on what it takes to be successful in Korea. Check out our PR coverage by The Investor to get a snapshot of our trip to Korea! And stay tuned for a recap video :D
