**Asia’s No.1 Tech Startup Conference, ‘beGLOBAL SEOUL 2017 Digital Showcase’ Opens For Registration** beSUCCESS, the top Korean startup media organization, organizer of the [largest Korean-Global Tech conferences](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp1hryaZxoM&t=8s) to date, and a global startup connector in partnership with Strong Ventures, a leading seed fund supporting Korean-Global entrepreneurship, are happy to officially announce the return of their flagship startup event, now with a new brand, “beGLOBAL SEOUL Digital Showcase 2017” The purpose of this "beGLOBAL SEOUL Digital Showcase" is to offer a more efficient way to connect promising startups from Korea with prominent investors around the world via live-streaming. beGLOBAL's aim is to combine this raging inferno of counter-culture innovation with the resources and immensity of overseas markets and investors. The conference focuses on providing no-BS advice and real, game changing opportunities to attendees. Last year, we worked with many remarkable people and companies to continue riding the storm. Think of a country 50 million strong. Packed into a land less than a quarter the size of California. Coming from next to nothing, this is a people who have worked miracles and economically surpassed much of the world. This is South Korea. This is the remarkable, raging cradle of innovation that beGLOBAL is opening to the world. Recently, immense investments in the future of Korea's ready-to-explode startup industry were made. Combine this with a total, near fanatical country-wide scramble towards English, education and achievement. The stage is set for Korea's young innovators to cast off the shackles of the 12-hour-a-day working man's life to be reborn as innovators. Entrepreneurs. The refined essence of what it means to defy the ordinary. Startups. **Here is a summary of the upcoming Digital Showcase** - Date: Oct 25th, 2017, Wednesday - Time: 09:00am - 06:00pm, KST - 20 startups, 16 min each (6 min pitch + 2min product demo + 8 min Q&A) **The previous Startups joined ** - Viva Republica (Total Funding : $77.2M) : Fintech startup to provide innovative P2P money transfer services called "Toss" - Awair (Total Funding $7.97M) : Smart connected air-related products provides a full-stack solution to control environments. - MangoPlate (Total Funding $7M) : Mobile application for users to find personalized dining recommendations - Miso (Total Funding $2.7M) : The best way to book a home cleaning in Korea - Korbit (Total Funding $6.52M) : Bitcoin exchange company based in Korea **The previous investors joined** - Naval Ravikant (AngelList), The Winklevoss brothers, Bill Draper (Draper Richards), Tim Draper (DFJ), Adam Draper (Boost VC), Jeff Clavier (SoftTech Ventures), Aydin Senkut (Felicis Ventures), Sarah Lacy (PandoDaily), Sonny Vu (Misfit), Kevin Lin (Twitch), Tim Chang (Mayfield Fund), Kevin Hale (Y Combinator), Ben Huh (Cheezburger), Jai Choi (Tekton Ventures), Eric Kim (GoodWater Capital) etc **Guidelines** - beGLOBAL team will use your primary contact's email address registered in BEGINNNING platform. - Please save a draft of your application until you are ready to submit for final consideration.
