COMMUNITY BUILDING

Blue Field Program (BFP)

This is a selective, cross-industry study community for those who aspire to start their own business. We believe that in order to create innovative and scalable business concepts that can solve major social and industrial issues, we need a community where we can learn about social issues, industrial structures, and technologies across industries. We provide a place where young talents with big ambitions who are working on the front lines of society can think about and polish their business ideas that should be seriously challenged, and we support business startups from the standpoint and experience of a seed VC as an incubate fund.
