Creating Opportunities: The New Korean American Entrepreneurship
Hamovitch Hall, USC School of Social Work

Panelists: Roy Lee (Vertigo Entertainment), Brian Lee (
Moderator: John Suh
The focus of this panel is to learn about Korean American entrepreneurship from across the spectrum – a panel of industry leaders who have created new businesses where none seemed to exist before. How did they find the inspiration or the opportunity? How did they fare against naysayers? What words of wisdom are they willing to part with?!?

FEES: We apologize for not making this clear earlier, but this is something that the Alumni Committee just recently decided as the best way to ensure that we have enough funds to plan spectacular events for the year.

We are proposing two fee structures: either $100 for the year or $25 for the entire weekend (Saturday and Sunday). All money donated is tax-deductible and is still eligible to be matched by our generous anonymous donor so we will double our spending power. Moreover, all funds will be earmarked for future alumni activities.

To donate, please make a check payable to “USC School of Social Work / NetKAL” which you will bring to the event or pay online at (make sure to direct the gift to USC School of Social Work and add NetKAL Alumni Fee to the note for “Special Instructions”). We’ll greatly appreciate your support
