Gov’t launches start-up center for Koreans in Silicon Valley
The Korean government opened a start-up support center in Silicon Valley in the United States on Monday, local time, to provide legal and technical assistance for Korean entrepreneurs.
The Korea Innovation Center will connect experts based in the IT mecca near San Francisco with Korean start-up owners who want to explore the U.S. market. The center will begin operating early next month after the appointment of a start-up expert as its head.
Technology experts from the Korean National IT Industry Promotion Agency and the National Research Foundation are being dispatched to the center to ensure that the start-ups are connected with the right mentors, who will share their insights on source technology development and commercializing products.
