Kingston entrepreneurs star on Korean TV


A Korean film crew flew into London in September to film Kingston University students and staff for a documentary series called Young Business Entrepreneurs.
The series aims to inspire and motivate new entrepreneurs by featuring stories of young people who have come up with innovative business ideas, challenging the negativity surrounding high youth unemployment.

Although the main focus is on Korea, the filmmakers wanted to highlight success stories from Europe and chose to feature Kingston University as an example from the UK.

Dr Martha Mador, Head of Entrepreneurship Education in Enterprise Support, and Anthony Ogunbowale Thomas, Tinaye Munonyara and David Kewal from the Entrepreneurship Society, were interviewed about entrepreneurship in the UK and at Kingston University. Anthony said, "It was a lot of fun and a great experience. They were genuinely interested, very hospitable and even brought us gifts!"

The programme will be shown on E-Daily, the Korean equivalent of the Bloomberg channel, at 8.00pm on Friday 29 October (GMT +9).  It expects to attract 10 million viewers through both the TV and online broadcast, giving Kingston very positive exposure to potential students in Korea.
