The Dong Koo Kim’s Chancellor’s Chair in Entrepeneurship was funded by the DK Kim Foundation through an endowment established in December 2020.

UC Berkeley, Haas School of Business, was able to hire Assistant Professor Solène Delecourt whose CV and accomplishments in leading, researching, teaching and inspiring Haas students have so far been exceptional.

Solene’s research in gender inequality, entrepreneurship, and field studies in India, Africa and
the United States made her an ideal match for the full-time faculty position that focuses on
social entrepreneurship.
