South Korea is experiencing a never-seen-before momentum in innovation, as highlighted by the two Reports “Tech Scaleup South Korea 2021” and “Corporate Innovation in South Korea 2021” produced by Mind the Bridge with the support of KITA and presented today in Seoul at the NextRise event.
Assistive Technology (AT), which is used to improve the functional capabilities of people with disabilities, is playing a substantial role in creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace. As part of their advisory activities, Mind the Bridge spots five global startups that are worth following in this space.
The 2021 edition of the Awards organized by Mind the Bridge in collaboration with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has been launched today at the Opening of the MENA Digital Scaleup Summit co-hosted by the Dubai Future Foundation and United Nations Economic and Social Commission for West Asia and supported by the Dubai Chamber.
The Scaling Manager is a new role risen from the need to accompany startups in their scale-up journey. Mind the Bridge implemented this model with S² Bridge: Incheon, a #startup accelerating platform operated by Shinhan Financial Group Co., Ltd. in order to run a Global Market Entry Program for 5 highly selected Korean startups. Each of them was assigned a Scaling Manager from Mind the Bridge.
For the fifth year running, startups have been asked to nominate the most active corporates in open innovation, this time at global level, thanks to the partnership between Mind the Bridge and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). In total, 50 companies from all over the world have been awarded: 25 as Corporate Startup Stars - with Mastercard (first), Bosch Group (second) and BP (third) securing the podium - and 25 companies named Open Innovation Challengers.
