If you’re starting off on a new venture, especially if you’re in the young foreign startup world, life can be full of challenges. Finding office space for your new enterprise can be a real challenge, for example. The high cost of Seoul real estate down payments, furniture, and utilities can drain your budget before you have even turned any revenue at all. Forget comfort features in your bare-bones startup office and tell yourself that in 5 or 10 years you can have some luxuries, right? No. It doesn’t have to be that way at all.
Hyundai Card is branching out beyond the credit and music library businesses into a new niche, called Studio Black. A shared office environment, Studio Black houses multiple flexible spaces just perfect for the young, energetic startup lifestyle. Complete with large communal spaces, inspirational collaboration spaces, cozy studio offices, software testing labs, 3D printers, a photo studio, conference rooms, well supplied kitchens, showers, and even a luxurious and quiet nap area, Studio Black impressively anchors itself as a go-to location to establish a small office in Seoul. Adding to the value are Hyundai Card classes, wherein Hyundai Card brings in interesting guest speakers such as novelists and Hyundai executives to discuss and teach Studio members lessons from their diverse backgrounds.
Studio Black also includes a number of scalable office spaces, quiet rooms, rooftop access, and perhaps best of all, several happy hour events. Marketed toward a strong mix of Korean and foreign clientele, this unique office space has its sights set on being the go-to office space for entrepreneurs and international creators in Korea.
