The start-up lounge program supported by students of CUK who participated last semester is being held form Nov. 2 to 18 by the Foundation Education Innovation Center (창업교육혁신센터). On Nov. 11, Jeon Hyun-il, the representative of TitansGallery, gave a lecture conducted through Zoom at 12 p.m. Through it, the students could get tips by listening to his story.
The trigger for starting his own business was simply due to lack of pocket money. Hence, he wanted to make his pocket money by winning a cash prize in idea contests and gaining experience by participating in contests. Eventually, these experiences led him to be where he is now.
However, it does not mean that he did not experience failure. When he experienced failure in educating business, he did not give up. After constant consideration of famous sayings on Post-it notes in his residence hall, he put them into practice and eventually created TitansGallary.
He advised students to accumulate their own seeds called experience. He said that even if you experienced it in other fields, the experience would return somehow to you. He also left a message of support for students, quoting a famous saying from Oscar Wilde, “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
