The Korea SMEs and Startups Agency (KOSME) has a mission to expand the influence of Korean-founded business into foreign markets. Selected as one of ten global locations, MATTER and KOSME launched the U.S. Market Adoption Program with five Korean healthcare companies aimed at U.S. market deployment.

MATTER equipped five Korean companies with a network of critical resources, mentorship and programming to advance their product, sales and fundraising in the U.S. healthcare ecosystem.

Throughout the six-month program, the SMEs accessed 19 educational workshops to help them navigate the complexities of the U.S. healthcare industry and grow their businesses, 105 mentoring sessions with a diverse group of healthcare stakeholders and 48 introductory meetings to potential customers and investors. MATTER also produced three separate showcase events to facilitate SME exposure. The companies will continue to benefit with a one-year MATTER membership.
