The importance of commercializing academic achievements has been increased as the paradigm of universities shifted from education-based to research-based. Startups that started from university research have many connections in universities, places where new technologies emerge. These startups play a vital role in the economy by directly contributing to local economies, encouraging private investments, and making high quality jobs. Startup KAIST focuses on these advantages and works hard to make university startups more active. Hence, we created a startup guidebook for faculty members in hope to help our members start a business of their own.
