Small/Medium Business (SMB) Workshop

KSEA Small/Medium Business (SMB) Workshop
US-Korea Conference on Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship (UKC 2017)

1:20 – 3:20 PM on Friday, August 11, 2017
8:00 – 9:40 AM on Saturday, August 12, 2017

Location: Ballroom B

The SMB (small/medium business) workshop is organized by the KSEA SMB Committee as part of its US-Korea SMB Partnership Program. The main goal of the Program is to promote and facilitate SMB partnerships between Korea and the US. Through the partnerships, SMBs in the two countries will have an easier market entry into their counterpart country. The Program is available gratis to SMBs as a public service of KSEA.

The Workshop will begin with presentations on how to enter a foreign market. The issues addressed will be rather non-technical and more directed toward legal, economic, financial, etc. Every participant will have a chance to introduce themselves and present their wish lists. Time will be set aside to have one-to-one partnership networking. The first day’s program will end with a networking dinner. The second day’s morning is devoted to optional individual meetings before the end of the Workshop at noon.
