Tech investor event to focus on South Korean start-ups

Tech investor event to focus on South Korean start-ups

By Stephanie Horsman - November 3, 2021

Vroom Monaco 2021, an exclusive one-day tech investor event, is returning this month and, for this edition, all eyes will be focused on South Korea. 

The Vroom Monaco Summit, an invitation-only fundraising event bringing together select technology companies, tech executives and investors, is taking a closer look at a powerhouse from the east, an underrepresented yet highly interesting market: South Korea.

The Asian nation will be in the spotlight this year, presenting themselves as a centre of technical innovation and business enterprise often overlooked by European investors.

The Korea Institute of Start-up and Entrepreneurship Development (KISED), working with Vroom, will give investors a chance to meet start-ups and trailblazers from the country’s booming tech industry.

Eleven companies have been selected to present: Geo-Line – an E-vehicle charging company, FS Innovation – working in sustainable textile dyes, Video Monster – producing social media videos, Hodoolabs – a game-based learning system designed to teach English, driving test outfit Morai, L-Base lung cancer researchers, Seoul Ventures who tout themselves as the future of e-commerce, Prinker – a temporary tattoo company, UIMD who specialises in blood analysis, DTonic – a big data company dealing in Spatio-temporal big data, and Bitsensing who design and develop cutting edge imaging radar technology.

The event will provide networking opportunities for both investors and companies, opening up business connections to the South Korean market and expanding channels to enable faster market entry options.

The Vroom Summit will be held on Tuesday 16th November at the Monaco Yacht Club on the Quai Louis II. For more information, visit the website at
