The Next-Generation Convergence Technology Institute (President Kim Jae-young, hereafter referred to as Yong Ki-won) announced that it held an entrance ceremony for the ‘2022 Gyeonggi-do University Student Convergence Technology Startup Support’ project on the 4th.

The ‘Gyeonggi University Student Convergence Technology Startup Support’ project is a technology start-up support project that provides a total solution from start-up establishment to prototype production support so that novel and ingenious ideas of university students can be realized.

The project, which started in 2016 and marks its seventh year, boasts excellent programs enough to produce a number of promising startups such as The Planit, Doctor Diary, Violet, and Turing.

This year, 20 newly selected teams and five follow-up teams were recruited from February 28 to March 18, and prospective and early founders (within 3 years) who want to start technology such as △ intelligent healthcare △ futuristic urban design △ next-generation transportation system were selected.

The entrance ceremony, held in the conference room of the institute, was designed to support the finally selected university (graduate) start-up team after a fair selection process, and various programs such as a certificate award ceremony, business orientation, agreement ceremony, and networking between startups were held.

Teams selected for this project will receive various benefits, including prototype production costs, labor costs, intellectual property rights application and registration fees, commercialization funds of up to 50 million won, and qualifications for moving into individual offices in the Yonggiwon co-founding space.

In addition, practical programs for commercialization such as startup mentoring, startup meet-up, startup boot camp, and startup demonstration day invited by domestic venture capital (VC) and accelerator (AC) in connection with Dr. can participate in

Kim Jae-young, president of Jung Ki-won, said, “The Gyeonggi-do university student convergence technology start-up support project supported by Gyeonggi-do and operated by Yonggi-won has so far received more than 840 beneficiaries, attracting investment of KRW 10 billion, applying for intellectual property rights of 350 cases, and sales of more than KRW 7.3 billion.
