Global Tech Webinar: South Korea – the Global Innovation Powerhouse

About event:

Austrade has been delivering the monthly Global Tech webinar series with our event partner Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA).   

In July, we shine the spotlight on South Korea. According to Bloomberg Innovation Index, South Korea was ranked #1 in the global list of the 60 most innovative countries in 2021.  The local government continues to invest generous funding to support a thriving innovation ecosystem. South Korea has nurtured more than 98,000 startup companies and many multibillion-dollar ‘unicorns’, including Kakao, Coupang, and Tmon.  

In this webinar, you’ll gain insights on:

  • how the Seoul Business Agency support foreign companies to thrive in the South Korean market
  • how to take advantages of the latest government grants for Tech SMEs and start-ups and gain support from KISED at the Pangyo tech hub
  • how to navigate the R&D innovation landscape and learn how foreign companies commercialise their technologies in Korea
  • new opportunities provided by Hyundai Motor Cradle Innovation Programme.  

Join our trade experts and entrepreneurs to explore export opportunities and gain insights into South Korea. Get your free ticket by using “Austrade” code.
