Seoul, South Korea-based startup accelerator SparkLabs has launched to support Korean startups in the Internet, online gaming, mobile, and digital media sectors.
Founded by serial entrepreneurs, Hanjoo Lee (Hostway), James Kim (Nexon), and Bernard Moon (Vidquik), SparkLabs aims to fill the gap for Korea’s entrepreneurs who seek connectivity, knowledge and mentorship as they work to expand into the U.S. and other locations across the globe.
The three month program will provide free office space, seminars, perks and access to a network of mentors from the U.S. and across Asia.
Advisors include Mark Cuban, Vint Cerf, Charles and Kai Huang (see the list here www.sparklabs.co.kr/en/mentors).
The application process for SparkLabs’ first class will open on August 30, 2012.
