If Silicon Valley is the startup capital of the world, Seoul South Korea could very well be a tech capital of the world. South Korea is home to both Samsung and LG, gigantic, multinational conglomerates that both do a lot more than make smartphones, computers and televisions. All of this innovation had to come from somewhere and over the years we’ve seen South Korea plant their foot firmly in entrepreneurship and startups again.

To celebrate startups in South Korea and across the globe the Ministry of SME’s and startups is hosting Startup Festival 2017 from Thursday November 30th- Saturday December 2nd at COEX Hall B, in Seoul.

The Startup Festival is being organized by 500VOLT TWO Inc, Brandcook, Korea Foundation for the Advancement of Science & Creativity, Korea Institute of Startup & Entrepreneurship Development, Korea Foundation for Cooperation of Large&Small Business, Rural Affairs, Korea Business Incubation Association, Korean Venture Capital Market.

One of the showcase startups that will be presenting at the event will be WizDish the creators of the ROVR2.

The Team behind the first commercially available Virtual Reality (VR) motion platform, the ROVR from Wizdish will be at StartUp Festival 2017 in COEX Hall, Seoul, Korea, talking about the ROVR, their start-up journey and demonstrating the ROVR VR motion platform.
