About

Believing Innovation. Connecting Korea's top talent with European Leading companies.

Presented by the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Korea, the nationwide annual Europe-Korea Business Plan Competition lasts for 5 months under the main theme of "believe innovation".

The initiative challenges engineering and business students in Korea to think about the future and how to impact on it by developing a technology or using an existing one in an innovative way. Contenders form multidisciplinary teams and develop an idea in a competition track: Web/IT, Mobile, Transportation, Energy & Infrastructure or New Products & Services. European company C-level executives are the competition judges and mentors. Mentors support finalist teams to refine their business plans and bring real-world expertise.

The initiative looks to foment skills such as entrepreneurship, creativity, teamwork and prepare participants for a real-world professional environment. In 2011, students from 38 universities fiercely competed for the Grand Prize.
