A Peek into the Soul of Seoul: How to do Business with Korea, and Farewell to Youngtae Kim, December 19th, 6 PM
You are invited to an evening of insights into the South Korean Business Culture and Tips for successfully doing business with Israel’s natural partner – Korea – organized by IsraelStartupNetwork. The event will take place on Thursday, December 19th at 6 PM, hosted by Microsoft Ventures at Microsoft R&D Center, 13 Shenkar St., Herzlia, in the main building, in the large hall. A registration desk will be set up at the entrance.
Korea is an ideal partner for Israel, having a deep appreciation for our culture of innovation, as well as much to teach us about global business. And, beyond the substantial Korean market, they are a friendly gateway to the vast Chinese market.

Mr. Youngtae Kim – Industrial Attaché at the Korean Embassy and Director of the Small and Medium Business Administration of the Republic of Korea - a dedicated supporter of bi-national cooperation, will, unfortunately, be returning to Korea this month. We therefore take this opportunity to say farewell to Youngtae, and to hear a few words about his vision, his hopes, his accomplishments, and his plans for the continuous expansion of this exciting and fruitful cooperation. Youngtae has prepared several extensive reports on Israel’s innovation culture for the Korean Government, and will soon publish a book based on what he has learned about Israel and entrepreneurship.
Following Youngtae’s short presentation, our panel will discuss issues such as cultural differences and similarities and tips for successful business cooperation, and will highlight some case studies that have leveraged the strengths of each country for mutual benefit.
