Technical Holding Company Venture Business Department Register as 'Accelerator’
This school will register as an accelerator (starting planner) and lead the second venture boom
Technology holding company [CEO Yoo Pil-jin (Professor of Chemical Engineering/High Molecular Engineering, Head of Industrial-Academic Cooperation Division)] said on April 11 that it will register as an "accelerator" of the Ministry of Venture Business and continue to support early startups by utilizing the excellent infrastructure and know-how that Sungkyunkwan University has.
Accelerators (start-up planners) are those who specialize in professional child care, such as discovering and nurturing early start-ups, and when registered with the Ministry of Small and Medium Business, they can be authorized to form individual associations and receive support from various tax benefits.
The government is planning to create a new fund for university technology holding companies worth 600 billion won by 2022 and expand the second venture boom through university technology holding companies by allowing university technology holding companies registered as accelerator to form venture investment associations through the enactment of the Venture Investment Promotion Act.
The technology holding company of the main school is expected to join the domestic university type accelerator, creating an ecosystem of start-ups based on excellent technology and spreading the second venture boom.
Professor Yoo Pil-jin said, "By registering as an accelerator, we have set the stage for a virtuous circle in which we can maximize the performance of our technology business based on the excellent intellectual property held by our university and reinvest in education and research."
Meanwhile, this school's technology holding company has established and operated 11 subsidiaries based on the excellent technology of teachers and researchers in universities since its establishment in 2012.
