An evening panel discussion about the challenges of fundraising for startups in Kansai.

Raising the Bar

In today's startup landscape, securing funding is often the most challenging aspect for founders. Recent scandals in the investor market have eroded investor confidence, leading to smaller funding amounts, increased scrutiny, and decreased risk-taking. While many governments actively support R&D projects and startups, Japan's startup ecosystem must catch up to other G7 nations regarding infrastructure, financial support, and entrepreneurial aptitude. This has resulted in significant challenges for startups in Japan, especially in Kansai, where its many benefits are not attractive enough to keep talent and financers from relocating to Tokyo, thus hindering innovation and growth.

Food and beverages will be served during our networking session after the panel discussion is finished.
