Come to South Korea, the hub of ICT startups.

 

 

SEOUL, South Korea, Dec. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ 

-- South Korea, which aims to become a hub for ICT startups in Asia as well as on the world stage, 

has embarked on a mission to find global talent for Korean startups.

 

The K-ICT Born2Global Centre (Born2Global), a major Korean government agency under the Ministry of Science,

from around the world and create an environment that enables Born-Global startups to grow based on strong foundations overseas.

 

Attracting workers from all around the world

 

The world's top startup ecosystems, including the U.S., UK, and Singapore, 

have already begun attracting workers not only domestically but globally as well, 

creating a firm foundation upon which startups may grow into global enterprises 

based on the strength of their culturally diverse workforces.

 

According to Compass' 2015 Global Startup Ecosystem Ranking, 

45 percent and 34 percent of startups based in Silicon Valley and New York, respectively, are staffed with foreign workers, 

while more than half of all startups in London (53 percent) and Singapore (52 percent) are comprised of foreign employees. 

This inflow of highly skilled personnel from around the world, who possess a deep cultural understanding of the global market, 

is helping startups expand their businesses into overseas markets.

 

Providing visa and labor services for foreigners working in Korea

 

Born2Global provides visa and international labor consulting services 

for startups that employ or plan to hire foreign workers 

as well as for foreigners newly hired by Korean startup companies.

In addition, Born2Global provides a comprehensive consulting service, 

offering consultations regarding E-7 visa qualifications, 

application method and process, required documents, 

and issuance of Letters of Recommendation for Special Foreign Workers.

 

The E-7 visa is issued to professional foreigners, 

or those seeking to invite professional foreigners, 

who wish to work in sectors specially designated by the Minister of Justice under contract 

with a public or private company in Korea. 

The Letter of Recommendation for Special Foreign Workers is a document issued 

by the government to companies that wish to employ foreigner workers; 

it supports the issuance of E-7 visas for such companies, offering benefits 

in terms of the entry and departure of foreign workers wishing to work in Korea. 

 

As part of  Born2Global's labor consulting service, a certified labor attorney provides consultations 

to foreign workers regarding labor-related issues in a wide range of areas, 

including recruitment, wages, personnel management, labor disputes, and retirement.

in a safe and fair environment until their retirement.

in Korea and overseas to all those seeking employment 

with or who have been newly hired by startups in Korea.

 

Fast-growing South Korean startup ecosystem

 

Thanks to the South Korean government's active promotion of creative economy policies, 

the institutional conditions for startups and startup-related innovation have been improving, 

along with the quality of the startup ecosystem.

 

Born2Global is pioneering the Korean startup ecosystem

 

Starting in 2013 with a comprehensive global expansion platform, 

Born2Global has been supporting promising startups 

and venture companies in their efforts to enter the global market 

in the early stages of their businesses in a number of ways, including offering consulting 

and training services and matching businesses with investors.

resulting in the filing of 428 patent applications overseas, signing of 230 business or partnership contracts 

with foreign companies, and establishment of 27 corporations overseas.
