About AtoA T*able 2015
뉴욕 메이커페어 2015 에 즈음하여 최근 화제가 되고 있는 Maker 에 대한 실질적이며 역사적 맥락 안에서의 소개뿐만 아니라 여러 분야에서 글로벌 시장에서 생존해 왔던 한국인들의 20-30 년간의 노하우를 공유하는 시간을 가질 예정입니다.
그리고 한국의 기존 기술 정책 및 교육 전반의 변화에 기여를 해 왔던 정부 기관의 관점의 “ 충돌” 을 통해 국가간 경계가 없는 새로운 방법을 만들어 보는 것이 이번 테이블의 본질적인 목표입니다. 특히 주목하고 있는 것은 취미 혹은 예술적인 표현 등에서 시작한 Maker 문화가 또다른 비즈니스로 형태로 발전해가고 있는 상황에서 그들에게 필요한 제조 방식, 크라우드펀딩, 운송 및 판매의 변화, 그리고 글로벌 교육의 관점을 Session 1, 2 에서 살펴 볼 것입니다. 마지막으로 개인과 초기기업의 움직임뿐만 아니라 국가정부 차원이 아닌 지역에서의 도시 경제 부흥을 위한 테크놀로지와 초기기업 육성을 위한 사례 분석을 통해 지역의 새로운 발전을 위한 아이디어를 가상 시나리오 기법을 통해 제시할 것입니다.
AtoA(0): America to Asia
Blend into(1): If someone blends into a particular group or situation, they seem to belong there, because their appearance or behavior is similar to that of the other people involved.
Maker(2): The community consists of a wide variety of interests and skill levels, from industry experts to garage tinkerers. For some it’s a full-time job, while others are weekend warriors. The types of people who identify as makers is just as varied, from those who focus on home crafts, baking and preserving, to electronics experts to woodworkers and welders. and their Maker Culture : The maker culture is a contemporary culture or subculture representing a technology-based extension of DIY culture. Typical interests enjoyed by the maker culture include engineering-oriented pursuits such as electronics, robotics, 3-D printing, and the use of CNC tools, as well as more traditional activities such as metalworking, woodworking, and, mainly, its predecesor, the traditional arts and crafts. The subculture stresses a cut-and-paste approach to standardized hobbyist technologies, and encourages cookbook re-use of designs published on websites and maker-oriented publications. There is a strong focus on using and learning practical skills and applying them to reference designs
Entrepreneurship(3): Entrepreneurship is the process of starting a business, typically a startup company offering an innovative product, process or service. The entrepreneur perceives an opportunity and often exhibits biases in taking the decision to exploit the opportunity. The exploitation of entrepreneurial opportunities includes design actions to develop a business plan, acquire the human, financial and other required resources, and to be responsible for its success or failure. Entrepreneurship may operate within an entrepreneurship ecosystem which includes government programs and services that support entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship resources (e.g., business incubators and seed accelerators), entrepreneurship education and training and financing (e.g., loans, venture capital financing, and grants).
Startup Company(4) : A startup company or startup or start-up(sometimes referred as innovative SME) is an entrepreneurial venture or a new business in the form of a company, a partnership or temporary organization designed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model. These companies, generally newly created, are innovation in a process of development, validation and research for target markets. The term became popular internationally during the dot-com bubble when a great number of dot-com companies were founded. Due to this background, many consider startups to be only tech companies, but this is not always true: the essence of startups has more to do with high ambition, innovativeness, scalability and growth.
