If you needed to sum up Korea in one word it would be this: fast. Three words? Fast, fast, fast! This is a country of speed and efficiency that is unlike anything foreigners are used to.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a business in fast-paced Korea, the Wood Egg Korea startup guide will be your go-to reference manual.
Each year we hire 3 researchers (at least one local and one foreigner who live in Korea), a native English-speaking in-country writer, and an editor, to bring you insights from multiple perspectives.
Our researchers spend over 200 hours interviewing local business people, politicians, and citizens who regular foreigners would never have access to. This is 200+ hours you will save to hit the ground running. (Bonus: When you register your eBook at WoodEgg.com you get access to all of our raw research and interviews.)
