[Digital Today reporter Cho Shin-eum] The Ministry of SMEs and Startups (Minister Chil-seung Kwon) and the Small Business Market Promotion Agency (Chairman Bong-hwan Cho) are recruiting universities to participate in the ‘2021 Small Business Online Specialized University’.
This online specialized college recruitment is designed to strengthen the ability of small businesses to enter the online market.
The Small Business Online Specialized College provides small business owners with opportunities to take and practice specialized education courses offered by universities such as e-commerce, online distribution/logistics, import and export, and marketing. This is a project that Gong has been promoting this year.
6 specialized educational institutions that can provide theory and practice related to entering the online market for small business owners are eligible to apply. The universities selected for this project will carry out educational projects for small business owners until December of this year after signing an agreement with the Corporation. . However, universities with limited government financial support in 2021 cannot apply.
Universities wishing to participate in the project can apply by e-mail by July 2 by filling out the required documents such as the project application form on the notice on the website of Sovac. After that, the final application target is decided through documents, presentation evaluation, and university field inspection.
The universities selected for this project will receive 8 million won from the government for education operation expenses, trainee training expenses, and operation support expenses.
Cho Bong-hwan, president of Sojin Gong, said, “We expect that the small business online specialized university project will help nurture small business owners who can respond to the rapid reorganization of the non-face-to-face and online distribution market. We look forward to your interest and participation so that it can contribute to the development and revitalization of the local economy.
