On November 13, 2012, Dr. Edward G. Rogoff, Dr. Gong Byung-ho and Ryu Taek-hyun visited Dongguk University as they were invited as guest speakers at the Dongguk Youth Venture Festival. Dr. Gong Byung-ho is one of the best experts at self-management and change management. Dr. Rogoff received the best Entrepreneurship Educator Price in the U.S in 2010. He is also a mentor of Jeff Bezos, the founder of “Amazon.com.” Ryu Taek-hyun is the oldest pitcher in Korea Baseball League. He is also a coach at LG Twins.

Dr. Gong Byung-ho classified the basis of successful entrepreneurs by seven points. First, entrepreneur should have passion. With strong passion, one can have strong mentalities as well. This would help one to overcome hardships in life. Second, entrepreneurship have special learning skills. They should learn changing industry very fast to follow or lead the trend. Third, a lot of knowledge and information is needed in one’s specialty. Certificate and license would be helpful. Fourth, see what others cannot see. It is related to ability to catch opportunity. Fifth, detailed items are needed. Search the needs of consumers. Sixth, be flexible and love changes. Learn by the case of Sony, Panasonic and etc. Last but not least, be patient. One should know how to wait and how to calm down.

Dr. Rogoff also categorized “Seven Concepts of Entrepreneurship.” First of all, every entrepreneurial business is a family business. One needs help by family such as seed money, advice and etc. Second of all, entrepreneurship is team sport. Venture needs human resources, technology and etc. Third of all, there are no unique characteristics that define successful entrepreneurs. Successful people loved learning, which can be raised by effort. Fourth of all, positive characteristics that aid entrepreneurs are self-awareness, flexibility, and the ability to collaborate. Fifth of all, failure is part of the entrepreneurship process and often has great long-term benefits. One learns from failure. Sixth of all, government plays a major role by creating a supportive environment for entrepreneur venture to flourish. Last of all, there is no one strategy, industry or technology that defines entrepreneurship. It can be offered everywhere. Alex Kim, an interviewee by the Post, announced that the lecture was very helpful and touching. The most memorable word by the professor he selected was “Success makes you rich, and failure makes you wise.”

Ryu Taek-hyun had an interview type of lecture about “Entrepreneurship on Mound.” The interview was concentrated on Ryu Taek-hyun’s life and baseball career. According to Kim Sung-woo, the interviewee that attended to lecture, it was thankful that he answered questions honestly, so that students could understand his words directly. One of the most memorable parts of the lecture was “Preparation is not the end. Good result is needed to support the effort.”

Dr. Rogoff, Dr. Gong Byung-ho and Ryu Taek-hyun : Dongguk students to face new challenge and use those good experiences as a foundation to build on their path of life.
