Update on October 13: Unfortunately we won’t be moving forward with this program at this time. We invite startups interested in growing in Korea to explore our Campus Residency program instead. Find out more here.
Editor’s note: Campus Exchange is a startup exchange program hosted by Google for Entrepreneurs. This fall, Campus Seoul looks forward to welcoming the first-ever Asia-Pacific cohort for Campus Exchange: APAC Commerce from November 6-10, 2017. Startups in e-commerce and retail from across Asia-Pacific are encouraged to apply here by September 24, 2017.
As one of the world’s top trading countries, Korea can certainly teach entrepreneurs around the region valuable lessons in e-commerce and retail. Here at Campus Seoul, we’ve crafted the perfect Campus Exchange program for startups to do just that.
If you’re an Asia-based e-commerce or retail startup, we invite you to join the first-ever Campus Exchange: APAC Commerce in Seoul from November 6-10, 2017. The program will give founders and startup leaders the opportunity to grow their business through targeted mentoring, connections and exposure to leaders and successful businesses in the Korean retail industry. Eligible startups can apply here by 23:59 (Korea time) on September 24, 2017.
This week-long immersion will bring together eight to 10 of the region’s best startups in the e-commerce and retail industry at Campus Seoul, Google's space for startups in Korea. As a participant in Campus Exchange: APAC Commerce, you’ll have individually-tailored networking opportunities, workshops on performance marketing, meetings with major commerce players in Korea and 1:1 mentoring sessions with Google experts and venture capitalists.
Past participants in Campus Exchange have expanded their network, increased revenue, gained new clients and grown their business in new markets. Pedro Matsumura Kayatt, co-founder of VRMonkey—a virtual reality start-up based in Brazil—said his business grew tremendously after he had the chance to learn alongside other startup founders from around the world.
Our company has definitely become much more mature.
If you’re a founder who wants to join a global Campus community and grow your e-commerce or retail business with new insights from Korea, we encourage you to apply here. Come join our global Campus community — 화이팅! You can do it! We hope to see you soon in Seoul!
