Dean Donghoon Kim of the Yonsei School of Business, Seongmoon Kim, Associate Dean of its undergraduate program, and Subin Im, MBA program Associate Dean, visited Aalto University on April 18-19 to plan the Global Start-Up Competition they will co-host in late September at the YSB Building. The YSB has hosted numerous start-up competitions and has its own incubation program for student venture teams. However, to emphasize that start-ups should look beyond the domestic market, the Global Start-up Competition is special in that its final candidates must present their start-up ideas in English. The Aalto faculty, which is known for innovative educational programs to encourage entrepreneurship and for nurturing start-ups, will be asked to participate in evaluating and selecting the winning team.
