The Seoul Global Center has produced 326 foreign CEOs through the Business Start-up School for Foreigners. Thirty-six foreigners from 18 countries are among the CEOs who successfully launched their businesses in the fields of trade, information and telecommunication, and education.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government has been running the Business Start-up School for Foreigners in Seoul from 2009. The course has enabled 36 CEOs from 18 countries, including the U.S., New Zealand, Canada, and Switzerland, to successfully launch businesses.
The Business Start-up School for Foreigners is providing training on issues ranging from basic information, including the process for launching businesses, permission and approval processes, to core knowledge required for business startups, including public relations and marketing, opening of online shopping malls, and acquisition of patents.
Starting this year, foreign residents who complete the Business Start-up School for Foreigners are entitled to up to 50 million won in loans for startups, as they are now eligible for the Seoul Metropolitan Government’s funds for the cultivation of small and medium-sized enterprises.
