(SEOUL=Yonhap News) South Korea will generate 150 billion won (US$127 million) in special funds to help startups and venture firms in science and technology sectors, the science ministry said Thursday.

The Ministry of Science, ICT, and Future Planning said the three funds are aimed at bringing more investment and creating more jobs.
