Mr. Song said “it might seem peculiar but it is understandable if you knew that Walmart has been interested in farming business and farming,” and said that one must be interested in the client’s situation and demands. Also, Mr. Song said that “it is important to meet good investors and partners,” and encouraged the students to look globally rather than only domestically. He introduced investment programs and open innovations such as ‘AEPW(Alliance to End Plastic Waste)’ that invests in eco-friendly startups and ‘Benz Startup Autobahn.’ Lastly, Mr. Song hoped that the students “recognize the importance of ESG innovation and positioning” and concluded the lecture after a Q&A session.
