What is Hokkaido Startup Communication?

The "Hokkaido Start-up Communication 2023" is an unprecedented business event in Japan that creates communication between professionals and experts who focus on management support, start-ups, and SMEs.

Until now, there have not been many contacts between startup business owners and professionals. Now, however, it is becoming increasingly clear that management support professionals are indispensable in helping startups grow and make further strides as sustainable companies. In addition, when startups and SMEs meet, the synergy between the technology and experience of SMEs and the innovative technology of startups is giving birth to a variety of innovations.

This event will bring together the front-line initiatives and case studies of startups x professionals and experts x SMEs. In addition, companies that provide mechanisms and systems to support business management will gather for exhibitions and presentations.

Creation of communication among speakers, exhibitors, and visitors is our keyword, and we will provide communication opportunities at the venue, during the social events, and after the event.
