Supporting entrepreneurs in North Korea
While North Korea’s rockets get all the news, a growing group of locals is hoping to launch startups instead — working on business ideas that can succeed in this extremely challenging environment. Choson Exchange brings experienced professionals to the DPRK to support these Koreans with hands-on training in entrepreneurship, business, marketing, and more. For several days, our volunteers host workshops on topics like agile management, lean startup methods, and innovation together with North Koreans who are working for positive change in their country.
Since 2007, we have brought hundreds of professionals to the DPRK, who have trained thousands of North Koreans. Our programs have been featured by major media around the world, and have a proven record of meaningful impact for the Korean people. If you want to experience North Korea while making a difference, become a workshop leader and join us on a trip.
