2020 will be remembered as a year of many trials and tribulations for all of us. Covid-19 has caused the global economy to suffer and the industrial landscape has rapidly changed in response.

Shinhan Financial Group’s 「S² Bridge : Incheon」 will be launched in October of 2020 and though the situation may be difficult now, we believe we need to find momentum for innovation in the startup ecosystem and strengthen our ‘global solidarity’ even though we are not free to move from one country to another as before. Thus, we have prepared a global conference called 「The Connect 2020」.

「The Connect 2020」 is an online conference in which the global community can be connected and share the insights of speakers who are leaders in the startup ecosystem. The event will be a valuable opportunity to gather information on how to look at changes in the startup ecosystem and strengthen global solidarity. We look forward to your interest and participation.

Finally, help us support 「S² Bridge : Incheon」 as it opens and begins a successful journey.
