SEOUL, Korea, Nov 29 (Korea Bizwire) – Prospective entrepreneurs have many questions when opening a new business, but these questions seldom get answered. The best way is through first-hand experience but even that is hard to come by with not many shops offering opportunities to learn business tips. In this regard, ‘CEOmake,’ to be launched by the same-name company, might offer those who mulling about starting their own businesses with opportunities to gain “real” experience; It gives them some chance to be able to work in stores in the field they are set to jump in.
‘CEOmake’ is a platform that connects prospective entrepreneurs wishing to check other similar stores before opening their own, with store owners who are looking for additional employees. Store owners receive free labor and can consequently reduce labor costs for a certain period of time, while people looking to start their businesses can gain practical insight which might become useful resources when they actually run their real businesses..
The application process is simple. Existing store owners can register their store on the ‘CEOmake’ homepage, and prospective entrepreneurs can select the store they wish to go to experience business know-how on-site. When the mutual party is set up, both sides meet ahead of the trial period to discuss varied details such as the possible length of the trial period. The platform can also be harnessed as a way for successful owners to expand their business into a franchise.
Lee Sang-kyu, co-President of ‘CEOmake’ says, “Various stores including coffee shops, pizza stores, hair salons, and fastfood restaurants have already been registered on our homepage within the first week of service. We believe that this new service will lead a new trend not just among domestic start-up businesses, but also among people looking to start their own business overseas after immigrating to foreign countries.”
