EV and Battery Challenge

At LG Chem and Hyundai and Kia, the future of battery and electric vehicle technology looks promising and we are thrilled to be engaging with the startup community on building this future, together.

We believe in investing in you – in what you think and what you do.

We want to see your proof of concept ideas – at whatever stage, wherever it may take place, regardless of where you’re from. Sometimes it just takes different pairs of eyes to see potential for strategic investment – in our case, by two of Korea’s biggest supporters for startups and investors for mobile and energy storage solutions around the world.
