Nonsan City and TJB Daejeon Broadcasting will create a new platform for supporting young start-ups together.
Nonsan City (mayor Hwang Myung-sun) announced its plan to recruit young people who want to start the restaurant industry as part of a tourism development project in the Ganggyeong Modern History and Culture Street, foster young businessmen in the region, and create a street full of youth and vitality.
Participants are individuals or teams of young people aged 19-39 in the jurisdiction, and a total of five (team) will be selected after receiving applications by the 30th.
If selected for youth start-ups, they will receive various opportunities such as free lease operation, start-up incubation, and brand marketing for up to five years. In particular, urban space planning startup ‘Iksundada’ (CEO Park Ha-na and Park Ji-hyun) will serve as a mentor for young people in the process of incubating recipe development and branding marketing, delivering vivid information with live field experience.
In addition, TJB Daejeon Broadcasting will feature youth start-up selection, incubation process, and start-up process every other week from July to December, which will not only convey the enthusiasm and spirit of young start-ups but also enhance nationwide interest in Ganggyeong Modern History and Culture Street.
Prospective young entrepreneurs who wish to participate can fill out and submit an application by e-mail through the Nonsan City Hall website (www.nonsan.go.kr) or the TJB Daejeon Broadcasting website (www.tjb.co.kr) by the 30th.
Nonsan Mayor Hwang Myung-sun said, "This project is very meaningful in developing dreams and enthusiasm with customized support such as early start-up education and consulting for young prospective entrepreneurs, as well as making a change in the Ganggyeong Modern History and Culture Street." "We will continue to develop and support various programs to create an environment where young entrepreneurs grow together.“
Ganggyeong Modern History and Culture Street is called the 'Museum Without a Roof' because it has various modern cultural heritages. Through the restoration of modern and contemporary culture, building maintenance, and alley maintenance projects, it will change into a splendid shape in the 1900s, and it is expected to become a representative tourist attraction in Nonsan.
