Netherlands Embassy in Seoul, South Korea

Visit of HRH Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands to promote startup cooperation between the Netherlands and Korea

From November 21-23, HRH Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, StartupDelta Special Envoy, will visit Korea. As the Netherlands is known as a leading startup ecosystem in Europe, Prince Constantijn will promote the Netherlands as the ‘place to be’ and gateway to Europe for Korean companies. The Prince brings along some top-notch startups that want to introduce their high-tech innovations to business partners in Korea.

The startups that will accompany Prince Constantijn are AgrenNewEnergy, Green Basilisk, Clear Flight Solutions, MANUS-VR, REDstack, Simbeyond and Widget Brain. The Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship/Get in the Ring Foundation will also join the mission.

Highlights of the visit include the launch of the Startup Mentor Network Korea on November 21 and the Get in the Ring Special Edition on November 22.

The Startup Mentor Network consists of Dutch entrepreneurs and representatives/senior executives of Dutch companies in Korea who are ready to help Dutch startups when setting first steps on the Korean market.

The Get in the Ring Special Edition will take place at NAVER’s D2 Startup Factory in Gangnam’s ‘startup valley’. Dutch and Korean startups will pitch their products and services to an audience that includes incubators, accelerators and investors. The event will culminate in MOU signings, networking and matchmaking. This promises to be a grand finale where business opportunities for startups will be materialized.
