The Essence of OASIS Visa Classes

The OASIS visa program is an initiative by the Korean government to support foreign nationals who wish to establish startups in Korea. Understanding the potential and the hurdles of such ventures, our classes were tailored to address the specific needs of these international entrepreneurs. From the basics of registering a startup in Korea to detailed strategies for business development, the curriculum was designed to cover all facets of entrepreneurial success in the local context.

From Idea to Execution

1. Startup Registration in Korea: The first module of our classes focused on the legal and bureaucratic aspects of setting up a business in Korea. Participants learned about the OASIS visa requirements, the step-by-step process of registering a company, and the importance of compliance with local business laws and regulations.

2. Idea Validation: Turning an idea into a viable business proposition is crucial. Our sessions included practical exercises for validating business ideas, understanding market needs, and identifying target audiences. Participants were encouraged to critically assess their concepts and refine them based on real-world applicability.

3. Business Planning and Development: With a viable idea in place, we moved on to business planning. Our experts guided participants through the creation of robust business plans that included marketing strategies, financial projections, and operational details. This module was essential for participants to visualize the path from startup to sustainable business.

4. Funding and Resources: Understanding the landscape of funding opportunities available in Korea, including government grants, venture capital, and angel investments, was another critical area covered. Participants explored various funding options and learned how to pitch their startups effectively to potential investors.

5. Networking and Mentorship: Recognizing the importance of networking, we facilitated interactions with established entrepreneurs and business leaders. This not only provided participants with valuable insights but also opened doors to potential mentorship opportunities.

### Participant Feedback and Success Stories

The response to our OASIS Visa classes was overwhelmingly positive. Participants appreciated the hands-on approach and the clarity provided on navigating the startup ecosystem in Korea. Many have since moved forward in registering their businesses, and a few have even secured initial funding rounds based on the pitches developed during our classes.

Conclusion: Empowering Global Entrepreneurs

By demystifying the process of starting a business in Korea and providing practical tools for growth, our OASIS Visa classes have empowered a new cohort of entrepreneurs. We are proud to witness and contribute to their journey towards innovation and success in the dynamic Korean marketplace.
