Energizing the startup/social innovation ecosystem

Entrepreneurship development and a sustainable finance ecosystem play a key role in promoting inclusive economic growth for South Korea. The Foundation’s Startup and Social Innovation Ecosystem Analysis study assesses the landscape, challenges, and opportunities for Korea’s startup and social innovation ecosystem and provides recommendations for both policy and programmatic engagements.

Impact Investing

Our online Impact Investment Digital Platform serves as a direct link between global impact investors, social enterprises, women entrepreneurs, and reduces transaction costs in identifying, assessing, and connecting them. In addition, our regular Impact for Breakfast (IFB) Seoul meetings bring together impact investors, regular investors, and ecosystem builders such as foundations, government, and NGO’s, to strengthen the sustainable finance ecosystem in Korea and other Asian countries.
