K-Startup Grand Challenge 2020 – Win $120K!

Are you ready to expand your startup in Asia? Plus, meeting with giant VCs!


Started in 2016, K-Startup Grand Challenge is a government-orchestrated global acceleration program, founded with a mission to support global startups from all over the world.

The startups, in turn, will be able to make a breakthrough in Asian markets, utilizing the experience in Korea as a launching pad. There are so many perks of this program, but just to name a few:

  • Cash Prize up to $120K
  • All the living expenses included
  • Office space in so-called “Korea’s Silicon Valley”
  • 1-on-1 mentors, networking with VCs

You could find more information in the brochure attached below.

The deadline for the online application is June 25. 

Our proud alumni from the last few years have raised a total amount of $1.2 billion (USD) from domestic and international investments. We truly believe this challenge will be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn a crisis into an opportunity.
