In 2002, at the 1st World Korean Business Convention held in Korea , an informal global business networking community for Korean young adults was formed. The group’s goal was to create mutually beneficial business relationships around the world. In 2008, the informal networking group served as the basis for the creation of YBLN, Young Business Leaders Network.

In 2002, the Young Business Leaders Forum (YBLF) created the “Economic Leaders for the Next Generation Forum” as part of the annual “World Korean Business Convention”. The forum was created to gather Korean young adult businessmen from all over the world and to openly exchange opinions and information among each other. Over the years, YBLF developed a wider perspective which culminated at the 2007“World Korean Business Convention” held in Busan. At this conference, many participants experienced strong sympathy and fellowship within the community and had a desire to develop this informal group into a formal broader, globally networking organization. Following the event, a group of charter members agreed to create the “YBLF Reunion” group led by Young-gwan Lee. By 2008, following the “World Korean Business Convention” in Jeju, the YBLF participants voted to appoint Young-gwan Lee as the first official chairman and formally named the new group YBLN, “Young Business Leaders Network”.

2002년 제1차 세계한상대회가 전세계 한민족간의 글로벌한 Win-Win Network 구축을 취지로 우리의 국제적 경제력 제고를 위해 처음 개최된 이래, 2008년 YBLN이 탄생되었습니다
