Start-up incubation programs and accelerators are exciting places for people with an entrepreneurial bent. Just by being there you feel the energy flow from people trying to make things better. In China we have featured Innovation Works and Chinaccelerator; and in Taiwan we have featured AppWorks. Since I was in Korea recently, I had to check out the incubator action in Seoul, so I dropped by SeoulSpace.

Set in the heart of Seoul’s Kangnam-gu district, Seoul Space is a leading start-up incubator that gives ambitious young start-ups a co-working space, help with seed investment and mentorship. Seoul Space is planning to create a structured curriculum program and process for their start-ups intake to follow.

The initiative was created by an impressive trio. David Lee, an early Director of Google and now co-founder of XG Ventures and also a limited partner of Y-Combinator. Richard Min, founded the first pay per click search engine in Korea. Chong-pil Yim, a founder of CP Entertainment, a Seoul-based Concert and Artist Licensing, Events and Promotions Company with representation experience ranging from Stevie Wonder to the Pussycat Dolls.
