Tech Venture Training in Korea

I've just received an invitation for a training event in Korea. Anyone interested to attend?

CICT is allowed to nominate two (2) government attendees and two (2) private sector attendees. Private sector attendees will have to purchase their own airline tickets. All other training expenses, accommodation, and ground transportation will be covered by the sponsoring organizations: Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), Colombo Plan, and the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID). Thank you!

Attendees should meet qualifications set by the sponsoring organizations: proficient in English, between 30 and 55 years of age, and in good health. I would add that they should be actively (or planning to be) involved in the development and growth of IT ventures in the Philippines.

The training runs from May 2 to 13, 2005. The programme will give special emphasis on ventures in e-commerce and the Republic of Korea's experiences in creating and sustaining such ventures.
  • Topics to be covered will include: Technology Business Incubation, New Venture cycle, Models of funding, and field visits to leading IT firms.
  • Teaching methodology will include case discussion and experience sharing.
  • Faculty will include successful technopreneurs, VCs and fund managers, marketing experts, and government policy makers.
If you are interested in attending this training, let me know before February 24. Just leave a comment (include your e-mail address so I can contact you).

Very much interested in this one. Will there be a screening for this? Thanks.

By the way, I'm with the Philippine Rice Research Institute, and our current project is the CICT-funded "K-Agri-Net" or the Pinoy Farmers' Internet. Maybe you have heard of it?

Hi Dondi, I'm Alvin. I work with the private sector, a new company engaged in e-commerce consulting and training. With our Corporate Social Responsibility program, we're looking at ways to help the IT industry here. I'm interested in the training, and I hope you can email me some particulars at

You started a very useful and informative site here. More power!

My name is Xavier Aurelio Q. Tabbada, a freelance software developer based in Davao City. I used to work with the government in the academe and then with a start-up private software development firm here in Davao City.

I believe my exposure in both the academe and the industry are key to bridging the gap between these two sectors. It is with this that I express my interest in the training you posted.

Thank you.
