Born Global Festival Week

Facing global challenges: German-Japanese startup & research collaborations

Japan Special – Powered by Born Global Startup Festival Week

Japan, like Germany, faces numerous challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, demographic change, digitization of industry and institutions, to which startups and researchers can contribute with innovative solutions.

This event will highlight initiatives in Japan that aim to address these challenges by engaging international startups. In addition, we would like to discuss how the existing relationships, especially from Central Germany, can be expanded in the sense of young companies and researchers.

Join us on the 2nd of December from 9:00-14:30!

Don’t miss out on other exciting keynotes, pitches and round-table discussions! Make sure to sign up for our Born Global Startup Festival Week as well.
