Incubate Academy

This is a lecture event on VC for university and graduate students. The VC industry is not well known among students, and the influx of talent into the VC industry is very limited. We will share the experience and knowledge that Incubate Fund has accumulated as a seed VC in order to share our aspiration to solve major social and industrial issues and create the next industry from scratch. We are looking forward to the challenge of young talents.


A total of 9 GPs from Seed VC will provide you with opportunities to learn about VC from various angles, including information on VC as a career, trends in domestic and international VC and startups, and case studies of past investments.

5 nights in a row
Date and time: 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., March 8 - 12
