Chea Srun, XQuant - Seoul FinTech Lab: Building a global FinTech business from Korea (S2E37)

Chea Srun, the Founder & CEO of X-Quant, a startup that got accepted into the Seoul FinTech Lab accelerator shares his experience with the program.

The Seoul Fintech Lab was established in 2019 and since then, has been funded by the Seoul Metropolitan Government. To date, close to 100 FinTech startups, including 26 foreign companies, have been supported through the incubation program. The Seoul Fintech Lab aims to help accelerate FinTech companies’ growth with its global network of over 300 partners and mentors, which include highly experienced investors, entrepreneurs and regulators. In that regard, the Seoul program possibly differs from similar regional programs — from the outset, it has been designed to allow for pan-Asian and even global expansion while promoting the growth of the domestic ecosystem.
