What’s Your Problem?
At G3 Partners Lab, we believe that startups need to be solving real problems for real people in order to succeed. We help you find your problem, validate your solution, and begin to grow.
G3 Lab is a new accelerator that is powered, funded and supported by G3 Partners, Asia’s fastest growing startup Marketing, PR and Growth company. Within two years G3 Partners has worked with over 200 startups and other ecosystem players in over 70 countries, including Korea, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Switzerland, Australia, Israel and the USA.
G3 Lab has a mission to support the rapid and sustained growth of startups, especially outside their home markets. The executive team at G3 Lab (Yongmoon, Nathan, Erik) and our team of Executive Advisors (Michael Hong, Hugo Choi, David Richardson) have worked with over 100 Korean startups that have global ambitions and have supported more than 30 foreign organizations with their Korea market entry (Garage Plus, Siemens, Bayer, Haier, etc).
We are especially well placed to support foreign startups in Korea. Having worked with entrepreneurs for the last five years we’ve realised that startups gain more benefit from practical support, than from formatted, ‘cookie-cutter style’ programs and training. G3 Lab is totally dedicated to providing that practical support and we have the resources and experience to do so.
We are a global team with global experience, and the only team that includes foreign entrepreneurs who has built a successful business in Korea. We know how to get customers in Korea, as foreigners, and have developed partnerships with Korean government, large corporates like Samsung, KT or KDB. We have a genuine understanding of all areas of building a tech startup as well as vast connections in the Korean and Asian startup ecosystem.
