KIES 2016: EDUPRENEURSHIP

In 2016, we arranged the first KAIST International Entrepreneurship Summit. 50 participants from over 10 countries have participated in a week-long conference. Exclusive speakers gave interesting talks across the first three days about how their companies and products leverage technology to enhance education.

Speakers included Jimmy Kim (Co-founder & partner at SparkLabs Global Ventures
Co-founder and president of N3N), 
Hyunwoo Sun (Co-founder of talk-to-me in Korean, the most popular website for learning Korean language online), Jaewon Cho (CEO of elice Inc., an interactive coding platform to bring highly effective programming class).

In the last days, delegates worked in teams to create a business plan on for their projects. A series of presentations was carried out to collect comments and suggestions from mentors and peers. The winning team was selected by our mentors and speakers.

Lastly delegates got to experience Korean culture throughout the week from evening Taekwondo class and Korean tea session. The event ended with day trip to a large Hanok village (Korean traditional houses) in Jeonju.
