Angela Lau
[FDI Procedures] Educational event and workshop provider
Hello! 

I would like to start a business in Korea that creates events, workshops, and educational experiences.

1. Would that fall under the 'education' category? 
2. I am going to start the company in Hong Kong and set up a branch office in Jeju,  where can I find information in government officials/services that help set up business on Jeju Island?
3. Do you have any resources to provide in terms of applying for public funding for events? 
4. Do you guys offer in-person business consultation (paid/free) in Seoul? 

Thanks so much for your time.

Hi. 

Let me answer your questions one by one. 

1. Would that fall under the 'education' category? 

Please check industrial classification of the National Statistical Office. The relevant website is linked below.

2. I am going to start the company in Hong Kong and set up a branch office in Jeju,  where can I find information in government officials/services that help set up business on Jeju Island?

Setting up a branch office is done by contacting a bank. Brach office is not considered foreign investment(FDI. Therefore, our center, foreign investment consulting center, does not handle the matter. 

Please check out the page 37 of the guide linked below for details of brach office setup. You can also check page 21 for FDI procedure.

3. Do you have any resources to provide in terms of applying for public funding for events? 

I am sorry. Please contact consulting firms for this matter. 


4. Do you guys offer in-person business consultation (paid/free) in Seoul? 

You can visit the investment consulting center of KOTRA for free consulting on foreign investment requirements and procedures.
