Operation of Startup Academy

Other universities are enthusiastically sticking their neck out for startup education. As of 2015, Hanyang University has produced approximately 400 alumni through startup class called “Hanyang Start-up Academy.” More than half of the academy alumni, 220 entrepreneurs in specific, succeeded in their business and earned 82.6 billion won in revenue. There is also a competition named “Lion Cup Competition,” in which students team up with alumni to start a business. In addition, the university offers “Techno-Business Administration” as a major course in the College of Engineering. Each team crystalizes a startup item with seed money of 100,000 won. Students who wish to patent their idea can apply for the “Patent Week” program.

Promoting Growth with Local Community

There is a university that promotes growth in both local community and startups. Ewha Women’s University (EWU) has launched “Ehwa Startup 52nd St. Project” this semester to develop student startups and local community. The purpose of the project is to revive an alley in front of the Main Gate of EWU, which was previously well-known as a street of fashion. Through this project, the university rents out a store for students planning to start a business. Additionally, rental fees, tax accounting, legal consulting and mentoring, and scholarship are provided up to one year.

Government Encouraging Startup

The trend of university’s support for startup businesses began by the government policies encouraging startup. In 2013, the Ministry of Education developed a plan for startup education with the vision of “Creation of Startup Ecosystem with Creativity, Challenge, and Hope” in order to vitalize startup education within universities. As an extension of the plan, the government has invested 1.5 billion won on startup education and vitalization of startup culture in 2014 to build a school-friendly regulation and ensure proper startup education.
