Starting with the campus town unit project in 2017, Sookmyung Women’s University has formed a partnership with Yongsan-gu and cooperated closely in the field of youth entrepreneurship and urban regeneration. “Through the support of the Campus Town Project, I hope that the Youth Entrepreneurship Support Center can become the birthplace of competitive young entrepreneurs, and I hope the resident enterprises can become the symbols of Yongsan Y-Valley’s success much like the Silicon Valley,” said President Yunkeum Chang.
