▶ Tae Yong Kim : Tae Yong Kim runs EO, Korea’s number one media on entrepreneurship and startups. The company started as a one man business and reached 5 million views with an interview on FAANG(a Silicon Valley startup). The Channel usually interviews Korean startup founders but its recent interviews include Silicon Valley based Notion and South East Asian startups. With these movements EO is developing into an Asian based startup media platform.

Hohyon worked at Twitter for three years, where he published open-korean-text, an open-source Korean text processor.

Based on his understanding of Silicon Valley companies' organizational decision-making process, he came up with a social data platform for collecting diverse opinions for social/political issues and founded a startup named OXOpolitics.
