Global Start-up Campus
Energy from Synergy
Incheon Global Campus (IGC) has launched the ‘Global Start-up Campus’ in collaboration with the
SW Convergence Promotion Center. The project was designed to foster global talents from our on-campus universities and to support businesses around the Incheon region as they enter the global market. This is an excellent opportunity for students, giving them early access to the world of business and helping them refine their global competency while helping local businesses successfully enter the global market. Meet our students andthe businesses they were matched with through participation in our global talent matching program, and find out how today’s synergy is creating tomorrow’s energy.

I applied for this project because I wanted to make the most out of my winter break. I thought I could learn a lot from an internship. I worked at Swan Electronics, which makes transparent displays, and it provided me with significant opportunities because I was able to experience what it was like to work out in the real world. My job was in marketing, introducing Swan Electronics and its products at international exhibitions and communicating with clients. At first, I was very nervous, but I soon began to enjoy the work. It was very rewarding, as well. I am going to use this experience to reach my goal of becoming an urban planner. When I look back on how committed I was during my internship program, I will know that there is nothing I can’t do. If there is anyone out there hesitating, I definitely recommend joining the program. Just take the plunge; you’ll experience something much more valuable than you ever imagined!

I worked as an intern at Neostack for two months, beginning on December 24. Neostack is an IoT security company that develops security sensors and devices. This February, Neostack took part in 4YFN (4 Years From Now), a global exhibition that helps discover promising start-ups. I was the interpreter and presenter for the exhibition, introducing Neostack products. While I continued my internship during the break, I was also involved in marketing. I communicated with Chinese companies, prepared for technical presentations, and helped with website development. It was a great opportunity to learn to do different jobs and take on different responsibilities. I cannot say that it was easy, but the experience I gained is more than valuable. I am proud to have been part of the program.

We are currently doing a number of different international exhibitions and we received a lot of attention at CES 2019, the world’s largest consumer technology show. Such attention could not have been possible without the help of our IGC students. For most start-up companies, it is very difficult to have access to necessary funds and human resources; however, we were able to make it into the global market by working with IGC and the SW Convergence Promotion Center as part of the Global Start-up Campus project. At Swan Electronics, we plan to work on quality upgrades and engage in various marketing activities in order to impress our brand name on potential customers around the world. We will be poised to take our place on the world stage and ask students to continue their interest and support for us.
