Alumni Park Jong-chan (Class of 2009) donated 10 million won to Development Fund

Alumni Park Jong-chan (Class of 2009) donated 10 million won to Development Fund On January 11 (Tuesday), alumni Park Jong-chan (09) made a donation to the Development Fund at the donation ceremony. Park, currently a director of Cookat, revealed that he decided to make a donation to KUBS to help juniors in return for the many benefits he enjoyed while attending the School. KUBS conducted an interview to hear the story of alumni Park Jong-chan.   1. Thank you very much for your thoughtful donation. What made you make such donation to the school? I decided to make a donation because I had some spare time and money in the process of expanding my business and attracting investment. In particular, when I was in school, I received a lot of benefits such as scholarships from the school, so I wanted to return the favor and help out the juniors. In the past, when I was still at school, I saw my mentor, Kim Jung-ho, the CEO of Bear Better, donating to the school, and I thought that if I could afford it, I would do the same thing, and now it seems like it’s happening.   2. How was your school life in the past? You said you received a lot of benefits. Could you tell us more in detail? When I was in school, I thought about a startup while taking the course ‘Venture Management’ by Professor Nam Dae-il. At that time, our representative, who is still with us, participated in an intra-school start-up competition, and fortunately, got a space in the Frontier Dormitory Building to start our business.     3. Do you have anything to say to the students who are dreaming about running a start-up? There are a lot of seniors from Korea University in the start-up industry. In particular, you can meet a lot of seniors among investors, and there are many cases where these people actively want to help you out. So people who are interested in starting a business are very lucky to have come to Korea University since there are many helpers who are willing to help. Therefore, if you are well prepared to take on a challenge, seniors in the industry will try to help you out, so it is recommended that you accumulate a lot of experience in related fields, whether it be a student startup or an intern. Also, team formation is very important when starting a business. It would be even better if you could begin by creating a team with trustworthy members.
