October 4th – 6th, 2018 – Meredith from ANGIN team had a pleasure to attend the Next Content Fair 2018 event which located in BEXO in Busan, South Korea. This event was designed to revitalize the content industry, which is becoming the source of creating highly added values and jobs in the future and introduce specialized contents by regions. During the event, ANGIN had a chance to participated in business matching with Korean startups in the Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, animation, and deep tech spaces. This event is hosted by Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, jointly sponsored by the Korea Creative Content Agency.
It was amazing opportunity to see and speak to various Korean startup founders and understand better the Korean landscape as well as how Korean startups are seeing Indonesia as a new market opportunity. Great to also meet with fellow regional South East Asian VCs such as Quest Ventures and Rakuten Ventures — seeing a growing relationship between Korea + SE Asia
Furthermore, ANGIN team also went to Seoul to meet with Korean government initiatives on the startup ecosystem such as Korea Institute of Startup & Entrepreneurship Development (KISED) and Korea Venture Investment Corp (K-VIC). Within this meeting, We hope to soon discuss further on opportunities in supporting one another’s ecosystem in market expansion and investment opportunities.
