  • In this research, we tried to suggest the guidelines to stakeholder of ICT startup for picking up the excellent startups and nurturing them. We designed the research model focused on the good startup team's knowledge based interaction mechanism. A research model and hypotheses were developed from literature review and empirically validated. The research model consisted relationship among the knowledge sharing (knowledge donation and knowledge collection), absorptive capacity (member's ability and member's motivation), team creativity, and innovation capability. Data were collected from ICT Service Startups, and a partial least squares (PLS) analysis was made on 175 data points. The analysis results showed that absorptive capacity has significant effect on team creativity and innovation capability directly. And also it has indirect effect on the dependent variable through team creativity. On the contrary, knowledge sharing does not have statistically significant effect on team creativity and innovation capability; only have an effect on absorptive capacity. Based on the results, we proposed several team management skills for ICT startup leaders and members, and the guidelines to stakeholder such as government and private investors. Also there are some ideas for startup nurturing polices for government officers. Theoretical contributions are discussed at the end with limitations and further studies.

  • Purpose: This study provide the matching mechanism between startup and business incubator to enhance managerial performance of business incubator. In addition, we propose the differentiation strategy for business incubator based on the needs of startups. Methods: In order to carry out the research, we surveyed 216 startups who already have invested in venture capitals and angel investors and currently residing in business incubator and 30 venture capitals and angel investors. Based on survey results, we develop a business incubator capability table matching startup with business incubator. Results: Satisfaction and importance of the supporting programs varied depending on the startup experience and startup lifecycle. As a result, we recommended a R&D center for machinery/material, bio/medical and electric/electronics startups and individual office for ICT and knowledge service startups. In addition, we suggested a differentiation strategy to BI in university specialized for machinery/material, privately operated BI for electric/electronic, (local)government, R&D center and individual office for knowledge service respectively. Conclusion: In this study, business incubator capability table is applied to match startup with business incubator and it could be applied to evaluate the current status of business incubator. Furthermore, it will help to establish a future strategic direction for business incubator.

  • IoT-based services are being released in accordance with the aging population and the demand for well-being pursuit needs. In addition to medical device companies, companies with ideas ranging from global ICT companies to startup companies are accelerating their market entry. The areas where these services are most commonly applied are health/medical, life/safety, city/energy, automotive and transportation. Furthermore, by expanding IoT technology convergence into the area of life care services, it contributes greatly to the development of service models in the public sector. It also provides an important opportunity for IoT-related companies to open up new markets. By addressing the problems of life care services that are still insufficient. We are providing opportunities to pursue the common interests of both users and workers and improve the quality of life.
