Equity Investment

Overview of EI


KOTEC has been actively participating in the private equity market through various equity investment initiatives in order to facilitate SMEs' access to equity financing. We, in particular, focuses on investing in startups and innovative technology-based SMEs that have not previously received institutional investments.

By doing so, KOTEC has been faithfully playing the role of priming water to catalyze follow-up investments from the private sector. KOTEC is planning to beef up its equity investment programs in order to boost the venture capital market of the nation, while reducing its high dependance upon debt financing schemes like credit guarantees.
