ASEAN-Korea Startup Week
The ASEAN-Korea Startup Week is an annual program organized by the ASEAN-Korea Centre to provide a platform to bridge the gap between the
ASEAN and Korean startup ecosystems. Launched in 2018, the ASEAN-Korea Startup Week recruits promising ASEAN startups to network and engage in
capacity-building with counterparts in Korea.
The flagship program of the ASEAN-Korea Startup Week is a Pitching Contest where ASEAN startup participants from all ASEAN Member States compete for
a cash prize and a sponsored trip to Korea to attend NextRise, one of the largest startup festivals in Asia.
