The event will feature a breakdown of AR/VR startup ecosystem trends around the world, with Israeli ecosystems in particular being discussed by a guest speaker. Additionally, Global Startup Lab 17th will also be a chance to learn more about the modern world through remote pitches by startups working in the AR/VR field overseas.



Compared with Western countries, the startup ecosystem in Japan is still developing. How have Europe, the US, Israel, and places such as India and Southeast Asia, which have achieved rapid growth, built their ecosystems and how do they currently operate?

To answer that, Global Startup Lab will provide an overview of startup ecosystem trends from around the world and then explain them all. This will help startups make great strides in their business by providing them with information on overseas corporations, VCs, accelerators, or incubation facilities: a crucial first step towards overseas expansion. As for corporations, we will provide information on the latest AR/VR innovation trends from overseas and explain how open innovation is being developed globally.

A social get-together is scheduled after the event. It will be a valuable opportunity to network and find out what’s going on in the world right now. Startup entrepreneurs, individuals interested in overseas startups, corporations with an eye on the startup world, as well as investors, are all welcome.
