[Startup Lecture Series] Open Gallery CEO Ui-Kyu Park “Startup is not a common sense”
[Startup Lecture Series] Open Gallery CEO Ui-Kyu Park “Startup is not a common sense” On December 4th (Tue) 18:00, the fourth KUBS Lecture Series 2018 was held at KUBS Startup Station, level 2 of KUBS Main Building. Ui-Kyu Park, CEO of Open Gallery, gave a special lecture on ‘Culture & Art Startup’. Open Gallery is a rental on-file platform of pictures. Consumers can rent a piece of art for a certain period at a relatively low price, and painters are given the opportunity to show their work to the public and sell them. Ui-Kyu Park explained the difficulties of Culture & Art Startup. He said, “Culture & Art Startups tend to grow slowly in the beginning compared to other industries” and “People having interest in something and actually paying money to buy it is a totally different story. The point is to ‘marketize’ the public’s interests.” According to Mr. Park, startups can grow the market by utilizing initial marketing expenses with competitors, but when competitors do not exist, the startup must solely deal with the marketing expense which as a result makes the initial growth slow. Mr. Park also stressed that the growing formula of Culture & Art Startups are different from that of preexisting startup industry. He explained “Consumers use cost-effectiveness as a standard when buying necessary goods related to food and shelter, but when it comes to emotional goods, the same standard is not applied”. He also stated the difficulty of a ‘market with a lot of bias’. Mr. Park said, “Since there isn’t much of a successful precedence, most people express negative thoughts when I say that I will begin a startup”. Nevertheless, he emphasized the entrepreneur’s mindset that “1 person may be right and 49 can be wrong out of 50people. Even if others say no, it does not mean it can’t be done”. Each semester, KUBS Startup Institute holds practice-based lecture series ‘Lecture on Demand’ and ‘Startup Lecture Series’ about startups and business venture. Anyone interested in the KUBS startup business teams and any KUBS students are welcome to participate in the lectures. For further inquiries, please contact KUBS Startup Institute at 02-3290-2551.

[Start-Up Lecture Series] TreePlanet CEO Hyung-soo Kim“Our goal is to create mutual benefit with partners”
[Start-Up Lecture Series] TreePlanet CEO Hyung-soo Kim "Our goal is to create mutual benefit with partners" Third lecture series during the second half of year 2018 was held on November 13 (Tue) at 6:30 in Business School Main Building Start-Up Center. TreePlanet's CEO Hyung-soo Kim gave a lecture about 'Power of Partnership'. TreePlanet is a socially innovated company in which they create forests with strong cooperation with its partners, already planted 700 thousand trees in 12 different countries. CEO Kim was once a film director of environment documentary and through being policy advisory consultant for Korea Forest Service, trained his expertise in this field. CEO Kim mentioned that he felt a lack of power of environment documentary that it only boosts people's awareness towards environment, not until the real action, which was the reason why he established a company that actually creates a genuine forest. CEO Kim explained the entry-stage business model (typical business model) called 'GAME' model. This game, 'TreePlanet' allows users to plant a real tree when they plant virtual trees when they play game. Company just simply insert the logo of the client, from which it receives advertisement fee, and use this fee to plant a real tree where tree is desperately needed. CEO Kim is satisfied that there are more and more sponsorship towards the company and business model is transforming into more intuitive and rather straightforward. He pointed out 'StarForest Project' and 'Adopting a tree' project as an example while highlighting many helps from company partners to individual partners. During the Q&A session, there was a question about how to form a partnership. He answered that one needs to build positive brand awareness/image through effective business model. As for TreePlanet, it was easier to form a partnership after winning a contest or being nominated as official app while internally, being chosen by a good inner circle, participating in good incubating system and analyzing predecessors' failed cases were certainly helpful. CEO Kim's ultimate goal is to make TreePlanet as a company not only seeking for the operating profit but also a company that genuinely helps its partner and entire community by setting its motto as 'Try to make partner more outstanding rather than our company, act like a tree that gives out everything without hesitation.'. Meanwhile, StartUp Center is hosting 'Lecture on demand' and 'Lecture Series' every semester to expose its students towards startup and venture. These lectures are opened to everyone, thus KUBS students and every single personnels who are interested in this lecture can participate.

The Biannual Conference this year held to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Korean Production and Operations Management Society under the theme “The Past 30 years and the Future 30 years of the Korean Production and Operations Management Society,” took place in the order of welcoming address, basic lecture, presentation of conference sessions, Hyundai Motors University Students’ Competition, planning session, closing ceremony and award ceremony. During the event, 14 teams competed in the areas of econometric analysis session and case study session competing based on the creativity and the development of future ideas. In the econometric analysis session, the Kokuma team (team members Cheong TaekHee, Kim MiSong, Lee NaYoung, Chae Songi) won the grand prize based on their idea, “Improvement of the 119 emergency processor” and the TMS team (team members Yoo MinSeok, Kwon MinKyoung, Lee JuHyoung, Hwang SeYeon) won the grand prize in the case study session based on their method, “The proposition of the method of constructing the EV dead battery reverse process.” According to the representative of the Kokuma team Cheong TaekHee (Business’13), “through the technology development of the 4th Industrial Revolution, the reduction and efficiency of the overall art of supply in various fields is being realized but it is becoming more difficult to take advantage of this golden time in the emergency process directly related with life,” and therefore they viewed the emergency process from the point-view of a one service SCM and suggested corrective measures. The Kokuma team actually analyzed the over 60000 collated data of the emergency ambulances’ movement for 2 weeks and studied the related problems econometrically and suggested corrective measures accordingly. Also Mr. Cheong said as he gave his winning address that, “this econometric approach was very critical in winning this award and continuous consulting feedback of Prof Shin Ho Jung and all the conference members of KULSOM was also very helpful”. According to Kwon MinKyoung (Business‘16) of the TMS team as he talked about selecting their topic, “The proposition of the method of constructing the EV dead battery reverse process,” that they took the approach of finding current problems and tried to develop solutions to them. The demand for electric cars is rising rapidly worldwide and Korea also in its effort to reduce carbon dioxide emission is also increasing the supply of electric cars but due to a deficient system, its efficiency is not being maximized and so they conceptualized the problem from this point of view and wanted to construct a reverse process that will invent a solution that will help to continuously achieve the true possibilities of electric cars. In addition, the factor that enabled them to win the grand prize is “team work”. According to Kwon, “the gathering of different people with different personalities to discuss about the topic and exchange feedback based on what each person had researched helped us to develop consideration for one another in the process and therefore we were able to benefit from the synergy effect that resulted from that.” The Professor that consulted and advised the two teams that won the grand prize, Professor Hojung Shin said, “for two years now, we have consecutively won the grand prize. I am very proud of our students who are gradually writing the history of KULSOM which emphasizes teamwork and harmony.” Meanwhile it is important to note that the Korean Production and Operations Management Society since its conception in 1988 till this year as it celebrates its 30th anniversary has seasonally held the spring and summer biannual conference to present and discuss the issues in Operations Management and has been publishing the Korean Production and Operations Management Society Journal four times a year.
