[THE INVESTOR] Hyosung Group, a South Korean industrial conglomerate, and North Jeolla Province have joined the efforts to help local game start-ups gain a foothold in China.
Hyosung Group and four other organizations, including South Jeolla Provincial Office and HN Games, formed a business agreement on July 7 at the Jeonbuk Creative Economy and Innovation Center, the company said.
Under the plan, Hyosung plans to invest 1 billion won (US$ 864,650). The company, in partnership with the organizations, will select local start-ups to support their technology research and development, sales in China and the expansion of their business network abroad.
