South Korea continues to solidify its position as a premier destination for Asian private equity and venture capital investments. In 2014, nearly US$11 billion was invested into South Korean companies with exits topping US$8 billion, the highest return figures in the last 10 years. It is easy to see why international and domestic GP's hold South Korea in high regard, being one of few Asian destinations where large leveraged buyouts are possible.
Venture capital is also gaining momentum as the Park Geun Hye-led government continues to advance on initiatives to promote innovation and foster SMEs. With capital inflows and creative input from local and international VCs, South Korea is living up to its reputation as a flourishing venture ecosystem as we witness the rise of angel consortia, accelerators, and local offices for established VC funds.
This intensive and highly focused event will provide front row seats into one of Asia's most vibrant private equity markets. Key players will share their views on private equity and venture capital in Korea, Asia and beyond.
