Undoubtedly UIBE pays highly attention to this entrepreneurship program for South Korean students, and a brand-new entrepreneurship laboratory had been established, which made it possible for Korean students to share entrepreneurial training resources with Chinese students.

During the first 2.5 months since this program started, 30 students, under the guidance of supervisors, had attended entrepreneurship trainings and courses as well as entrepreneurship themed lectures. They conducted several field studies, business simulation training, and visited the famous Chinese company Alibaba as well, and participated in “Dongsheng Cup” International Entrepreneurship Competition with second prize won at last.

Zhao zhongxiu, the Vice president of UIBE, expressed sincere thanks to South Korean government, delegates involved as well as professors and business elites, and congratulated on the success that this program had made, and also on the smooth cooperation between China and South Korea. China-South Korea friendship will pass on from generation to generation.

Among these projects, the project “hand-made snacks for pets” made by Li Youna had won the grand prize. She was very thankful for the encouragement and help that her classmates had gave her during that 2.5 months and the meticulous guidance from her supervisor. Speaking of where she gets this idea, she mentioned that at first she just intended to make some snacks for her own pet, and then she realized that this is a remarkable business project to work on. Winning the grand prize was beyond her expectation. She said she hopes to make her company the biggest pet snack producer through her efforts.

In the end, Mr. Yoon Daisang delivered a speech to all the students graduated from this program.
