Global startup ecosystems are expanding into Japan

Know the Basics


Upon request – once we have at least 10 interested companies, we will organize an online delegation.

Who can take part?

Any startup from Asia that has a product and revenue in the home market and a potential product-market fit in Germany is welcome to apply.

How much does it cost?

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, this delegation is free for all participants.

This is our first delegation to Japan and while we are preparing a tentative agenda, you can read about the experience of our delegates to other countries.

Why Japan?

Japan is one of the largest economies in the world, third only to the US and China. Despite having the oldest population globally, 92,8% of Japanese use the internet, way more than Americans (74,77%).
Japan took the concept of Industry 4.0 and transformed into Society 5.0. The country aims to become the most connected and data-driven providing customized solutions through the adoption of AI, robotics, big data, and drones – as well as through policy and regulatory reform. Partnering with the private sector, Ministry of Economy, Trade is developing a system in which Big Data can be traded securely and effectively. And to enable development of new services, The National Institute for Advanced Industrial Science had set up a cloud-based access to the fastest supercomputer which allows SMEs to crunch large amounts of data for deep learning and AI.
Join us to Tokyo and the flagship event of German business in Asia – Asia-Pacific Conference! You will mingle with the C-suite of the German corporates in Asia, showcase your startup at our side-event and meet key players in the startup ecosystem.
We are closely monitoring the situation and will make the decision if the delegation takes place in the autumn in early July. Stay tuned!
