Call for Exhibitors!

The "Startup Showcase" (exhibition) is a booth exhibition event for startup companies that develop products and services based on various technologies such as IoT, AI, AR/VR, software, and consumer electronics. Approximately 40 startups from Japan and abroad will exhibit, and each booth will promote and demonstrate their attractive products and services.

This offers a great meetup for Japanese companies that see new business opportunities in co-creating with overseas startups, and for investors, VCs and CVCs looking for investment opportunities!

We welcome corporations, venture capitalists, and anyone else who is interested in innovation!
