For over a decade, Korea has been a stand-out leader in the creation and adoption of ICT (Internet, Communication, and Technology). Korea has the longest history of mobile WiMAX, 3G, mobile video, ringtones, mobile apps, mobile music and many other leading wireless solutions. They have the world’s highest penetration of home broadband, and a highly competitive fixed telecom space which is rapidly integrating with the mobile networks. This makes Korea two things: an important bellwether example, and a fertile market for leading ideas in ICT.
Meanwhile, the US (and notably Silicon Valley) is no slouch. The Bay Area represents a massive portion of ICT innovation worldwide. With the strength of the two regions, there is a natural incentive for cross-pollinization, dealmaking, and trade.
Because of the natural synergy, The Telecom Council of Silicon Valley and KOTRA, the Korea Trade office in Silicon Valley are presenting an event about the Korean market for ICT (Internet, Communications, and Technology. The meeting will examine the opportunities offered by the advanced Korean market, and will also feature presentations from some of the most interesting companies out of Korea.
We will have:
• a briefing on the Korean ICT market
• a contrast to the US market
• an introduction to four Korean telecom start-ups
• a look at major ICT trends
• and a discussion on how agents in the two countries can collaborate.
This meeting, managed by the Telecom Council, is free to attend for up to 75 ICT managers from US and Korean companies who pursue global business opportunities.
