Here’s a heads up if you have your eye on Korea’s tech scene and its startups – Venture Square, backed by public organization Gyeonggi Content Agency, is sending five startups from South Korea to Singapore, and wants to extend an invitation to all investors to mingle with them in a cozy networking party over drinks. Read on for a quick rundown on who these startups are.
Eggbun aims to teach foreigners Korean by offering one-to-one tutoring. It allows users to ‘chat’ with the program as it guides the conversation with accepted responses.
Melephant aims to create a new video entertainment culture with its product, Funch. It pits users’ homemade 10-second clips against each other, encouraging friendly competition based each video’s popularity.
It’s no secret that Koreans take their education very seriously. IAMcompany is one of the many startups that’s capitalizing on this massive market. It currently has two products, IAMSchool and IAMClass. The first ensures that anxious parents can access their child’s school announcements and facilitates management, while the latter provides management and attendance systems for institutions.
MH Mind is a mobile billing service. Through the app, users can tap to pay for goods and services through their preferred method.
Attocube is another edtech startup that merges offline puzzles with the online world. It takes the classic set of wooden blocks and smartens it up, so young users can match block shapes with what they see online, to develop their cognitive skills.
The networking party will be held as a follow up to Venture Square’s Demo Day happening on November 18, where each startup will have a chance to soak up the limelight and pitch for five minutes before taking questions from the floor. From this, one can expect to shape a deeper understanding of how the gradual influx of Korean startups into the Southeast Asian tech ecosystem will impact the dynamics within the market.
Get up close and personal with these promising startups as well as other investors, accelerators, and enterprises who are looking for ways to collaborate in an informal setting at the Singapore networking party to be held on November 20.
