D.CAMP’s Pioneering Support for Korean startups


If you’re in Korea and you want to meet a handful of startups, I suggest you visit D.CAMP, sitting in the heart of Gangnam in Seoul. This six-floored, 45,000 square foot building is fully packed with passionate local startups and entrepreneurs. First, you can go up to the 4th floor where you can encounter lots of entrepreneurs passionately working on their ideas. Then you can grab an entrepreneur and both of you go down to the 2nd floor, where you can mingle in a small cafe and enjoy snacks like Kimbap or a cup of coffee. There sit the startups who rent office space – you might even get a chance to talk to Formation8, the Silicon Valley-headquartered VC firm. When the sky begins to darken, go up to the 5th floor. You might want to check you have  enough business cards to hand out to the entrepreneurs participating in the Meetup.

I am interested in applying design thinking to the business. I love to code in Central Park on weekends and build something people love to use. You can reach me at sehwan@techforkorea.com
