FKI Chairman Huh Chang-soo and Yozma Group Chairman Yigal Erlich signed a memorandum of understanding to promote exchanges between venture firms of the two countries in the short term and to support Korean venture start-ups with Yozma’s experience and knowhow in new ventures, the FKI said in a statement.
