South Korea’s best innovations in the field of EdTech coming to Seoul Summit organized by Mind the Bridge (September 19-21). South Korea’s high-speed internet, strong technology companies, and reputation for early adoption of technologies – combined with one of the world’s largest proportions of teenagers entering higher education and huge household spending on out-of-school classes – has made it a major testbed for educational technology start-ups wanting a springboard to global markets.
A significant transformation is happening in the way we do things, and the answer is digitalization. Industry 4.0 refers to a new phase in the Industrial Revolution that focuses heavily on interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data. Mind the Bridge is hosting Scaleup Summit South Korea (Seoul, September 19-20): 7 startups operating in this field are invited. The event will include curated panels and visits to the local ecosystems, where corporates, investors, and scaleups operating in specific industry verticals can do business and spot technology trends.
On September 21st, Kised (Korean Institute of Startup and Entrepreneurial Development) and Mind the Bridge we will host a Korean Scaleup Demo Day, as the final event of a 2-month long Acceleration and Global Market Entry program.
