Unjong Startup Festival (with PY Ventures)


Dates expected to be 14 November - 21 November- still to be confirmed

While Pyongyang is DPR Korea's increasingly glitzy capital, the city of Pyongsong sitting outside the capital is a major trading hub that is home to many smart entrepreneurs who are working on business ideas for the domestic economy. Join us to work with small business owners and hopeful first-time founders at Unjong Special Economic Zone next to Pyongsong City to mentor early stage startups. Share you knowledge in marketing, finance, management, startups, mentoring or entrepreneurship ecosystems at our annual Unjong Startup Festival. The trip includes site visits in Pyongyang and Pyongsong City that sheds light on entrepreneurship in the DPRK, and an interactive three-day workshop for DPR Koreans who are trying to start a business. Suitable workshop leaders have worked in or with startups, venture capital firms, ecosystem builders or have business knowledge from specific domains. Get in touch to learn more!

This program is sponsored and organized by PY Ventures, with Choson Exchange as an implementing partner.
