Korean Venture Capital Firms have grown quickly over the last decade. Seoul is becoming a major tech hub in Asia. Furthermore, they have the highest concentration of smartphone users. Therefore Korea presents a good place for innovative startups that can shake up the market through technology. Many Korean startups have been upgrading and introducing new products to the market which they can test in Seoul.

The global market sees Korea as a limited market due to its tough regulations that limit entrepreneurs from doing new business models, mainly in the fields of finance and Blockchain. Once this changes, multibillion-dollar markets will be up for grabs for VCs in Korea. Korea has a strong talent pool. Big corporations like Samsung, Kakao, LG, and Naver have some of the highest trained engineers. Many Korean startups are looking to find the right Korean VC. Therefore here are the Top 20 Korean VC firms of 2021.

The rankings were comprised by the Seoulz staff and are based on 4 factors:

  • Investment Funds
  • Asset Under Management
  • Global/Domestic Partners
  • Portfolio
