I was inspired to launch iLoveSchool from living in a dormitory and working with others in the laboratory while enrolled in KAIST’s College of Business. Many innovative ideas were produced from daily interactions with fellow students in graduate programs. KAIST was one of the first to offer campus-wide internet connectivity, and this was another factor that helped with brainstorming and collaboration. It was around mid-August 1999 that I came up with the idea of connecting people. Participating in group projects and learning under experienced faculty in the early days of the internet were what laid the foundation for my entrepreneurial career.
My advice on startups is to get into it when you have an idea. Since it is impossible to prepare everything on your own, you need a group of people you can rely on and work with. The startup environment is much better these days, with more opportunities to network with others and attract venture capitalists.
Your startup item should be something that is not limited to Korea. I would like to see your idea expand and serve others all across the world. KAIST is a place that inspires and drives entrepreneurial growth. By sharing your thoughts with fellow students and getting valuable feedback in the process, you will be able to turn your ideas into effective action.
