Google has announced plans to set up a Google Campus in Seoul. The US based search engine giant held a news conference saying that the space will provide infrastructure to Korean venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
Korean innovators and entrepreneurs are some of the best in Asia and Korean startups are making headlines around the world, especially in the mobile space, said Google exec Bridgette Beam in a post on the company’s Asia Pacific blog.
The program â which has bases in London, Tel Aviv, and beyond â is designed to allow the local startup ecosystem more pathways to tap into the experience, resources and support provided by Google’s local and global teams.
On Google’s official Asia-Pacific blog, the company said that as its first such space in Asia, Campus Seoul will be joining a global network including Campus London, Campus Tel Aviv, and the recently announced Campus Warsaw and Campus Sao Paulo.
Campus Seoul will open next year near the Samsung subway station in southern Seoul.
