The 2020 was a turbulent year with significant changes in the business environment for startups due to COVID-19. X-HUB TOKYO has been encouraging startups to expand their business overseas in order to realize "creation of a new normal" through the power of startups, precisely because people's lifestyles have changed so much.

We would like to report on the results of this year's event as a token of my gratitude to everyone who has participated in the events, to the members who have supported the X-HUB TOKYO, and to the various support organizations.

In addition, graduates of the X-HUB TOKYO from previous years and entrepreneurs with experience in overseas development will take the stage to discuss the future of overseas development and the secrets to success.

Feel free to join, not only for startups aiming to expand overseas, but also for those from large corporations and supporters who are interested in the situation of startups!
