The Korea-US Innovation & Entrepreneur (KOUSE) Center is a space with individual and corporate members that is dedicated solely to the promotion of greater awareness, understanding and cooperation between the people of the United States and Korea.

In pursuit of its mission, the KOUSE Center arranges programs that facilitate discussion, exchanges and research on topics of vital interest to both countries in the areas of R&D, Intellectual Property (IP), IP innovation, entrepreneurship, business, and education. Funding for these programs is derived from contributions, endowments, grants, membership dues and program fees.

From its base in the Washington, DC metro area, the KOUSE Center serves audiences across the country through its own outreach efforts and by forging strategic alliances with counterpart organizations in other cities throughout the United States as well as in Korea.

The KOUSE Center also provides the expertise, support, and connections innovators and students need to become effective entrepreneurs. The KOUSE Center provides the knowledge, support and connections needed by our community of scientists and clinicians who want to commercialize their inventions through a startup.

We empower our community by providing courses, programs and a vast network to expose them to the entrepreneurial mindset. We support entrepreneurial interests in all areas of technologies and businesses.
