TOKYO City-Tech for a sustainable future, powered by startup spirit
* City-Tech is a new approach to create a vision to solve large cities’ common issues with various ideas and technologies
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has set a goal of making Tokyo "the most startup-friendly city in the world" as one of its visions for the 2040s in its comprehensive plan, “Future Tokyo Strategy”. In February 2022, it also formulated “Startup Collaboration Strategy ver. 1.0”, working to promote startup measures across all relevant departments of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. This event will be held as one of the major projects to implement this strategy.
The event aims to contribute to the evolution and globalization of the Tokyo startup ecosystem by strengthening and expanding relationships between Japanese and international players, and attracting overseas investors. In addition, this event also has the purpose of contributing to Tokyo’s development and the improvement of lives of Tokyo residents by promoting overseas startups’ expansion to Tokyo and their business development in Tokyo as well as the global business expansion of Japanese companies through collaboration with overseas startups.
We would like to proceed with preparations for a successful event by establishing a broad public-private partnership with related organizations and companies involved in supporting startups, as well as relevant events. If you would be interested in sharing your ideas and working with us, please email to the Global Event 2023 Executive Committee Secretariat.
