On October 4, NEDO and Japanese Startups joined “Silicon Valley New Japan Summit” at Stanford University Alumni Center, Stanford, CA.
This event was aimed to provide an opportunity for Silicon Valley Startups to meet Japanese corporations. The afternoon session was dedicated to business development; each startup had a booth and opportunities to speak directly with corporates and investors. The event also had panel discussions to present successful collaborations between Japanese corporations and Silicon Valley startups; HONDA and Drivemode, and Komatsu and Skycatch were the selected cases.
Triple W and Quantaglion which are participating NEDO’s startup support programs joined the Business Development session and enjoyed speaking with local Silicon Valley audience as well as Japanese large corporations.
