Throughout 2023, the Lab has worked with various organizations to promote programs for the growth of its resident companies. Recently, it held a GROWTH Demo Day in collaboration with Eugene Investment & Securities to provide IR opportunities to companies, and conducted open innovation with Hana Bank to advance fintech technology. Furthermore, an agreement with DGB Financial Group has been concluded to continually discover potential opportunities for these companies.
The upcoming Performance Sharing Meeting and Fintech Year-End Greeting Event on the 28th is a special occasion for the startups that have grown through the support programs of Seoul Fintech Lab. It will be an opportunity for resident companies and related organizations to communicate and share various achievements made in 2023.
For instance, Habit Factory, which surpassed 10 billion won in commission revenue last year through its insurance comparison and recommendation app ‘Signal Planner’, has already exceeded 7.4 billion won in the first half of this year. It recently raised 20.6 billion won in a Series C funding, bringing its total investment to 34.4 billion won, which will further enhance its technology. The K-content investment platform ‘Funderful’ has also expanded its foreign investment by signing an MOU with the security token offering (STO) platform ‘IX Swap’.
