IATI CEO judges at Startup Battle Korea 2014Oct. 19, 2014
IATI CEO, Karin Mayer Rubinstein, was a panelist and a judge in the Startup Battle Korea contest in September 2014 - a contest where the best startups in Korea are selected through competition to maximize their opportunity for global expansion of their business. The event was organized by Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) and hosted by Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning of South Korea. Taken place in KINTEX, Ilsan (near Seoul), the contest was a part of “Global Mobile Vision” (GMV), a major exhibition & conference on mobile technologies & solutions.
Apart from judging in the contest, Karin participated and spoke in the panel "Where to start up? Start up in homeland first or overseas?" with Draper Associates' Billy Draper, AcreWhite's Danel Seal, Expedia's Jerald Singh, and Bingham McCutchen LLP's Stephen W. Clinton.
Right after the contest, Karin met with Korean Vice Minister of Science, ICT and Future Planning, Yoon Jong-Lok, to discuss possible Israeli-Korean co-operation in various fields of innovation and advanced technologies.
