All Markets


South Korea’s economy regularly ranks as one of the most innovative in the world and that dynamism has helped the country elbow its way to the front of the global pack in everything from electronics and semiconductors, through automotive and battery technologies and, more recently, to biotechnology and the life sciences.

Intralink has been active in Korea since the early part of this century and established a permanent presence in the country in 2008. We have worked with clients across a wide range of key growth sectors to establish a foothold in the Korean market, either through a direct sales & licensing strategy or by establishing local sales channels. We have also worked with many Korean clients – corporates, SMEs and venture-backed scaleups – to support their international innovation strategies or to help them enter new international markets.

Through our bilingual team of 30 market and sector experts, we have the experience, the know-how and the contacts to help companies succeed in this challenging but potentially very rewarding market.

Get in touch to discuss how we can help you expand in Korea.


"In less than a week, we'd started sales activities in Korea - and this proactivity and flexibility were a clear demonstration of the commitment of the team."

Claude Seyrat – VP Marketing & Strategy, Expway

Client stories

Technology:Solid oxide fuel cells
Targets:Korean energy multinationals
Result:US$ 57M deal with Doosan

Ceres, a British company specialising in solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology, already had a Korean partner. But the relationship was a difficult one and progress was slow.

We decided to take a different approach, focusing on potential new partners with a greater appetite and technical capacity to develop fuel cell products. 

We identified an opportunity with Korea’s largest fuel cell player, Doosan, and ultimately enabled Ceres to license its technology to Doosan in a series of deals worth USD 57 million.
