(DAEGU=Yonhap News) Daegu Center for Creative Economy & Innovation welcomed startups joining the 8th Creative Laboratory (C-LAB), a startup accelerating program on February 13.
13 startups will participate in 10-month regular program, and can attract "Enlight's 2nd CD Fund" additionally up to KRW 400 million after review on growth potential and business performance.
