SPORTS TECH TOKYO is a global community for best-in-class sports tech startups from around the world to connect and innovate with leading corporations. We hosted a kickoff conference at Tokyo Midtown Hibiya BASE Q and Imperial Hotel Tokyo on April 8th to 10th.
We orchestrated business matchings between 106 companies that gathered from 19 countries, Japanese sports teams and leagues, and corporates who are interested in creating new businesses.
We announced our 12 finalists on April 26th.
In our 3rd meet-up session, we will introduce the 12 finalists selected in SPORTS TECH TOKYO and will be giving a progress report on the program. We will also host a discussion session on current trends in the sport industry and examples of best practices in building a business in sports.
You will come away with a better understanding of what is happening in the industry today. This will also be a great opportunity for networking with partner/sponsor corporations and mentors who will be attending.
