Startup Grind Bucharest is organizing its first event related to Japan, together with Startup Grind Osaka. We will unveil the opportunities of Japan for the Romanian startups, with practical steps to enter the world's 3rd biggest market with Joshua Flannery, Startupbootcamp Scale Osaka, and Alex Govoreanu, CEO Questo.
Startupbootcamp Scale Osaka is a market entry program designed to help founders from around the world scale their business in Japan, by collaborating with Japanese corporations on PoCs. Joshua, Advisor of Global Venture Strategy in Rainmaking Innovation Japan, has run the programme working on creating PoCs between startups and seven large Japanese corporations. He will explain the startup ecosystem in Japan and Osaka, and how he has created the collaborations with the Japanese companies.
Questo completed the market entry program this February and has been conducting PoCs with three large Japanese corporations in three different cities in Japan. Through this panel discussion we will be exploring his experience in Japan.
This event will be held in English.
