The Demo Day would be held as part of “Gyeonggi START Pangyo Acceleration Program,” a public-private partnership content start-up development project.
The Gold Ark x Spark Lab Consortium, a professional start-up planner (accelerator), and The Next Lab x Startup Research Consortium will be organized on the 18th and 25th, respectively to host the event.
In addition, investment experts from Douzone Holdings and Eugene Investment & Securities will attend according to the schedule to promote investments in fledgling companies (start-ups).
This year’s Demo Day will be broadcast online minimizing the scale of offline event in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Anyone interested in major investors and start-ups can watch it on the YouTube channel, “Gyeonggi Culture Creation Hub”.
An official from Gyeonggi content agency said, “The business environment of startups is deteriorating due to changes in the external environment such as COVID-19,” adding, “We will continue to promote partnership-based programs with private investors to strengthen the competitiveness of startups in Gyeonggi Province and attract investment.”
