Overview

In an effort to pass along the spirit of Asan Chung Ju-yung, the founder of Hyundai, the Asan Nanum Foundation endeavors to raise the next generation of entrepreneurs, who will lead Korean society with their innovation. We hope to provide opportunities for young leaders to learn and challenge themselves, so that they can move on to realize an open society in which all members develop themselves to their full potential.

The Asan Nanum Foundation targets an innovative and dynamic type of sharing. In the same spirit in which Asan founded the Asan Social Welfare Foundation (http://www.asanfoundation.or.kr/) in 1977 for the practice of medical welfare, scholarship, and academic research, the Asan Nanum Foundation strives to create a society in which an individual’s accomplishments can lead to greater giving.

The focus of our outreach is on two initiatives — i) Promoting entrepreneurship and supporting the startup community, and ii) Building capacity and advancing innovation in NPOs.
