Chatwork, the provider of the business chat service Chatwork, will hold a Demo Day for its accelerator program for startups, Chatwork Collab Accele, on Monday, November 21, 2022. Chatwork is now accepting applications for the general public to attend the Demo Day!

Background of the "Chatwork Collab Accele" accelerator program

In its mid-term management plan, Chatwork has set a goal for "Chatwork" to become a "business version of Super Apps" by 2025 and beyond, becoming a platform that serves as a starting point for all kinds of business.

We have formed a corporate venture capital (CVC) "Chatwork Super App Fund" and have formed business and capital alliances with startups whose businesses are compatible with "Chatwork" and with whom we can expect synergies, thereby accelerating the realization of a "business version of Super App. We have been accelerating the realization of a "business version of super-appli".

In the Chatwork Collab Accele, three startups were selected from among the many applicants, and concrete partnerships were discussed throughout the program. The "Demo Day" was held to present the results of the program and to provide a venue for the selected startups and attendees to meet and create business opportunities for both parties.

Chatwork is confident that through this program, we can make the act of "working" in the world more enjoyable and creative.
