The Incubateur HEC Paris welcomes a Korean delegation at Station F
On September 30, 2022 a Korean Delegation led by the Vice Minister of the Ministry of Economy and Finance of South Korea visited Station F, the world’s biggest startup campus, which currently hosts 21 Korean startups through the Incubateur HEC Paris program.
For the very first time, HEC Paris - represented by Inge Kerkloh-Devif, Senior Executive Director of the HEC Paris Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center and Philippe Oster, Senior Executive Director of International Affairs at HEC Paris - welcomed Choi Sangdae, the Vice Minister of the Ministry of Economy and Finance of South Korea along with a delegation at Station F.
The aim of the visit was to introduce both the startup campus Station F and the Incubateur HEC Paris to the Korean delegation in order for them to closely understand the French startup's ecosystem. The visit was also the opportunity for all parties to discuss how to facilitate and support Korean startups' entry into the European market.
The delegation met one of 21 Korean startups participating in the Korean Startup Center (KSC) program, a program initiated by three partners: the Incubateur HEC Paris, the Korean Institute for Startup and Entrepreneurship Development (KISED) and the Korea SMEs and Startups Agency (KOSME). The KSC program was created to improve the market fit of South Korean startups in France and in Europe, and to accelerate their business development.
