BeLaunch: Connecting South Korean Startups With the GlobalStartupEcosystem


South Korea is a leading player in the global tech industry with Korean brands leaving their mark in various sectors. While we hear a lot about South Korean firms innovating and pushing the envelope, there is hardly any platform to showcase the thriving software and tech startup scene in South Korea. BeLaunch hopes to do just that by giving a platform for Korean startups and at the same time enable people and organizations outside Korea to tap into the exciting world of Korean entrepreneurship. BeLaunch is a flagship initiative of BeSuccess which is South Korea’s leading media platform focused on startups and technology. BeLaunch will be hosted at aT Center Yangjae, Seoul on June 13, 14 2012.“With 1000+ attendees, 142 startups from Korea participating in the startup battle, international investors and media, we can claim to be the biggest such event in South Korea. Our sponsors and partners include Samsung, Amazon Web Services, Qualcomm Q Prize, Google and more. We want to showcase some of the best Korean startups during BeLaunch and facilitate connections between Korean startups and the global startup community” says James Jung, Founder and CEO of BeSuccess.
