betahaus X and K-Startup Grand Challenge

Startups! Ready to expand to South Korea?

You’re invited to join us live on 18 June as betahausX and K-Startup Grand Challenge (KSGC) interview startups who have successfully made the leap into South Korea.

By 2018, The Guardian reported 467 accelerators, venture capital funds, and government organizations supporting startups. In 2019, it beat out China, Germany, and Sweden on the Bloomberg Innovation Index. It’s the motherland of major conglomerates like Samsung, Hyundai, and LG, and it's the country where Google created its first-ever campus in Asia. Even in 2020, a year overshadowed by pandemic, the country made headlines for their effective response to COVID-19 using contact tracing to spur a quicker-than-average recovery.

The country we’re talking about is South Korea. And their startup scene is definitely having a moment.

You’re invited to join us live on 18 June as betahausX and K-Startup Grand Challenge (KSGC) bring together startups who successfully made the leap to South Korea. Meet the founders & CEOS behind Imagga, Inspire Me Korea, and Tespack as they share why they chose to launch in Korea, how it’s paved their path into the Asian market, and how you can get your startup into South Korea in 2020 by applying to the K-Startup Grand Challenge (program info below!)

What we’ll cover:

  • Introductions to a network of startups who launched in Asia.
  • Expert advice and insider tips from startups who have made the leap successfully. 
  • Instructions and insights on how to apply for KSGC 2020.
