Do you think of starting a business in Korea? Do you have business ideas for start-ups?

The Korean government has created a Start-up visa(D-8-4) that does not limit the amount of investment to foreigners who want to do business in Korea through technology-based start-up.

If you have a good business idea, it is time for you to apply for this event. Suggest and get evaluated! We will help you to set up a corporation and get a Start-up visa to do business in Korea with your business idea alone.

Seoul Global Center, a Business Navigator for Foreign Start-ups and investors, is going to hold an Idea Audition for foreigners who want to acquire a Start-up visa(D-8-4).

An idea audition named 'A Big Think 2018' will be held to receive various support such as evaluation of business ideas, corporate establishment and visa acquisition. We all know that nothing can be achieved without try. We believe this event will be a turning point in your business, and we look forward to your interest and participation.

This competition is co-hosting with KIPA(Korea Invention Promotion Association), KPC(Korean Productivity Center), and Kookmin University to discover and foster foreign entrepreneurs with business ideas.

We will make your dreams come true. Show off your business ideas!
