KSEA(Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association) is hosting its 3rd Innovation and Entrepreneurship Symposium (IES) during the US-Korea Conference on  December 15 – 18, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County, Garden  Grove, CA.  The symposium seeks to provide a cooperative environment for current and future aspiring entrepreneurs in the US and Korea to network with high-profile entrepreneurs and investors, listen to the stories of those who have successfully exited their companies, and learn about the best practices of startups, from protecting your intellectual property and assets to securing funding from venture capitalists and government agencies. The symposium program and additional information can be viewed on the UKC website and from the attached program overview.

For budding entrepreneurs, come pitch to potential investors at the Startup Pitch Competition about how your solution seeks to improve the synergy between the US and  Korea. We invite all entrepreneurial-minded American and Korean professionals to attend the IES during UKC 2021 and learn about growing cross-border business opportunities in the US and Korea today. About ten competition finalists will go head-to-head to compete for various awards, including cash awards. Additional details, including eligibility requirements and timeline, can be found here and from the attached program overview and the flyer.
