While Trump is pitching Kim Jong Un on beachview condos in Wonsan, frontier entrepreneurs in North Korea have been launching startups in one of the world’s most challenging markets. Choson Exchange has been teaching startup skills in the DPRK for more than half a decade. CE Head of Operations, Nils Weisensee, has worked with hundreds of North Koreans on their business ideas and has advised startups on marketing, management, and financial planning in this extremely challenging environment. In his talk on June 28 in Hong Kong, he will share first-hand insights on the state of business and startup culture in the DPRK, and discuss whether North Koreans are ready to face the global market.
