Gwangmyeong G-Hub is recruiting companies
to participate in Overseas Networking and Market Support Project under the
theme "Earth-protecting Entrepreneurship - Globalization" for startups in
Gyeonggi area that are seeking to enter the overseas market.
The market size of the eco-friendly
products in Korea is about 4 billion won as of the end of December 2018, and
the market size is continuously expanding. Also, through the Green New Deal
announced by the government in July 2020, it is expected to grow significantly
in the future, but it is not as active as in overseas markets such as Europe.
In other words, since it is hard for
eco-friendly products or services to grow without entering overseas markets,
the Gwangmyeong G-Hub, which leads eco design/contents convergence
entrepreneurship, established a program to enter the overseas markets
specialized in the eco industry.
This project selects a total of 20 teams of
startups with eco products or contents that have been founded less than seven
years ago. The selected teams are given opportunities for training and
one-on-one consulting to diagnose the overseas expansion competencies to
establish advancement strategy. A total of 15 teams selected as outstanding
companies will be given marketing fund of 4 mil. won per team, and support for
investor/buyer matching and B2C sales will be given online.
Also, by cooperating with Gwangmyeong
Upcycle Art Center, an opportunity to participate in the International Upcycle
Design Week held in Europe from November 5 to 12t will be given.
Customized marketing such as promotional
material for overseas expansion, video, IR material, business proposal,
promotion/advertising for entering the market, trade show/consultation for
meeting buyers, contract, and translation/interpretation are provided according
to the overseas expansion strategies and needs, and this support can be asked
again within the budget.
The application can be filled out by
logging onto G-Hub webpage (www.gcon.or.kr/ghub) and downloading the
application and business plan template. It will be accepted from August 24 to
