Welcome to Digital Economy Forum Seoul 2018, co-hosted by the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the Ministry of SMEs and Startups. The Forum is to be held on November 22-23, 2018 at Hotel Conrad Seoul and co-organized by Korea Startup Forum, Startup Alliance, Korea Internet Corporations Association.

The world economy is rapidly evolving through innovative growth led by tech-driven corporates and leading-edge startups. Moreover, innovative growth is made possible in countries equipped with a robust ecosystem to empower innovative companies to drive the digital economy.

We are delighted to launch the first edition of Digital Economy Forum this year in collaboration of the government and the private sector to scrutinize what are the driving forces of digital economy, mainly focusing on the platform business and entrepreneurship. Platform business is revolutionizing the conventional economic structure in our time and creating new values for all sectors. More importantly, startup founders armed with innovative entrepreneurship are leading the revolution. We expect the Forum to help guide us in the right direction for the innovative growth through in-depth debates and discussions with experts from diverse fields.

The forum is our first step to shape our future where all innovative startups and tech companies will grow within a more stable and innovation-friendly ecosystem. It consists four sessions which will lead us to insightful discussions touching upon a variety of topics (Session 1 : Big waves “What are the big trends and how is the platform business transforming our economy”?, Session 2: Uses Cases “Innovators’ Stories”, Session 3: How can we build a robust ecosystem to nurture entrepreneurs in the Digital Economy?, Session 4: Real stories of entrepreneurs).

We hope the Digital Economy Forum Seoul 2018 will be an invaluable opportunity for all participants to seek and explore the optimal strategies, roles, and policies for innovation-driven growth.

Bongjin Kim Chairman, Korea Startup Forum
