Korea Innovation 2020: Finance and Innovation Support for SMEs and Startups


The WBG’s Finance, Competitiveness and Innovation (FCI) Global Practice combines expertise in the financial sector and private sector development to foster private sector-led growth and help create markets in client countries. Within client countries, FCI works with governments to create an enabling environment where financial stability, access to finance, and risk management provide a foundation to crowd-in private sector investment, create capital markets, and accelerate equitable growth. 
Korea’s impressive economic growth between the 1960s and 1990s was fueled by the government’s concerted effort to build an infrastructure for national science, technology, and innovation (STI) systems, such as think-tanks, government agencies, research-focused universities, and specialized research institutes.
