KUBS ITS, Wins Smart Fiber Product Idea Competition

KUBS ITS, Wins Smart Fiber Product Idea Competition     KUBS undergraduates made a great success by winning ‘The 5th 2020 ICT Smart Fiber Product Idea Competition’. It was held by Korea Fiber Export and Import Committee and Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy. The winners were from KUBS academic group ITS(Information Technology Society).   List of first place winners: Team ‘I SUM U’△Boseung Kim(KUBS16, Team Leader), △Suhyeon Kang(KUBS18), △Woojin Yoon(KUBS18), △Heesoo(Media 18). List of second place winners: Team ‘Doctor Sleep’ △Seyeon Choi(KUBS17, Team Leader), Hyejin Lee(Statistics 16), Dayeon Chung(Spanish 19), Yoonseo Chang(Economics 15).   Professor Byungwan Kho, the counsellor of ITS addressed his congratulatory remark, saying “ITS members are continuing great adventures in different kinds of market, by applying cutting-edge digital technologies in real business world. Despite of the difficulties due to the outbreak of COVID-19, their passion and perseverance made a great work. I am very proud of them.”       Winner Interview: Team ‘I SUM U’   1. Please introduce your team’s idea   We developed a bicycle saddle named ‘Saddle Here’, and we used several ICT Smart Fibers in its design and optimized to reduce the pain of bike rider. When a person rides a bike for a long time, they usually suffer from the pain at their hip and back or have some other dermatological issues. There are a considerable number of reasons that trigger the pain, but most of the riders do not have an advanced level of knowledge to figure out the main causes of them.   Therefore, we tried to provide a complete solution for the most riders. We found out that the main causes of the pain come from the height and angle of the bike saddle, or the temperature and humidity. After that, we put a special sensor that might change the forms of saddle according to the rider’s position, so that riders can automatically fit them into the right position.   2. Could you describe the key strategy to win the competition?   At the beginning, we had a hard time discovering a right strategy in this competition because the concept ‘ICT Smart Fiber’ was quite unusual to us. However, we focused in utilizing technology in our daily lives, and we think that was the right strategy for us.   3. How would you describe your current feeling?   Despite the difficulties caused by COVID-19, we strived to make a great result and we invested a lot of effort every day. At the bottom line, we think it was possible since we studied together in ITS, where members are passionate in combining great technologies with our lives. I would like to thank our team members and the ITS group at the same time.

CEO Han claims that the identity of Sopoong Venture Co., Ltd isan ‘impact accelerator’. This means that it will not only provide financial investments but also provide support for companies that have received investments to grow and "accelerate."   CEO Han explained that impact investment does not just mean 'good investment'. Impact investments are located above the spectrum between financial and social values, thus setting the balance between the two values can be different for each investor. Also, paying attention to social values does not mean that the rate of returns is falling. The return of return on impact investment is said to be higher than the market average. Due to the characteristics of millennials and Z generation that put high value on social values, impact investment has been growing rapidly not only globally but also in Korea for the recent 1~2 years. As an investor with start-up experience, CEO Han offered advice for prospective entrepreneurs, such as △define the problems and solutions, △set short-term goals, and understand the competitive environment. He then wrapped up his lecture by introducing investment processes that students need to know as a prospective entrepreneur, and standards for evaluating entrepreneurs from the perspective of an impact investor.

[Startup Institute Lecture Series #4] “The Innovation of Laundry makes the Innovation of Food, Cloth

[Startup Institute Lecture Series #4] “The Innovation of Laundry makes the Innovation of Food, Clothing, and Shelter” – Laundrygo CEO Cho Sung-woo   The fourth lecture of the Lecture Series, organized by Korea University Business School (Dean: Jae Wook Kim) Startup Institute (Director: Hojung Shin), was held on September 22nd (Tue). The Lecture Series is part of the Entrepreneurship Academy hosted by the Seung Myung-Ho Center for Entrepreneurship Education - an educational institution within the Startup Institute, and is a lecture conducted by start-up mentors working in the field. This lecture was titled "The Innovation of Laundry makes the Innovation of Food, Clothing, and Shelter," and was delivered by Cho Sung-woo, CEO of Laundrygo. It was conducted as a real-time online lecture due to the COVID-19.   CEO Cho Sung-woo has been operating a mobile laundry service called 'Laundrygo' since 2018. "The change in laundry can even bring about innovation in the living space," CEO Cho said, explaining the company's name and the meaning of the lecture title. If the laundry service is activated, it can replace the space occupied by washing machines and drying racks in the living space.   Cho introduced his experience in running the social commerce "Dumb n Dumbers" in the past, naturally sharing his episodes of failure. Cho's episode gives the message that various experiences, regardless of failure or success, could eventually lead to new business ideas. The business idea of Laundrygo also came from a happening in which all of his belongings were stolen from a trip to the United States, but except his laundry.   Laundrygo is the start of untact laundry services and a new generation of the laundry business, Cho said. As the third-generation laundry business that connects the first and second generations of the local laundry industry with the franchise laundry, it has a total of five core competitiveness: △mobile laundry service, △untact delivery, △smart factory, △all-in-one service, and △subscription economy. Unlike the previous generation of laundry, Laundrygo does not rely on offline stores, so full online services can be maintained at no additional cost. In addition, all services will be carried out without any contact using ‘Laundlet', a smart laundry collection box developed by the company. Smart factory reduces the cost of washing and keeps the quality of washing process consistently. Laundrygo will implement an "all-in-one service" that will unify the laundry space that had been dispersed to laundry, coin laundry, and home etc. by providing various services such as water washing as well as dry cleaning. Lastly, the company is making excellent use of the subscription economy by offering various price systems according to various lifestyles.   In addition, the company uses eco-friendly vinyl clothing, and also enforces eco-friendly policies such aas collecting clothing covers and hangers from customers, while recycling and reusing them. Moreover, the company is seeking ways to accumulate big data on people's actual medical lives through laundry and utilize them in various ways in the fashion industry. Lastly, Cho wrapped up his lecture by presenting two phrases: "Don't lose your original intention" and "Pursue your mission, not the trend."
