Message from Organizer
Keisuke Kajitani / Keio University
Thank you very much for your interest in Youth Venture Summit (YVS).I happen to visit Seoul this summer and met young Korean entrepreneurs with bright mind and passionate soul. Some says Korean startup industry is facing difficult time right now but I felt that with these entrepreneurs with global mind, the situation is reaching its tipping point.That goes the same to Japan. We are facing the same “go global or die local” problem. By connecting the startups and incubation programs in each country, we aim to build a global network and enhance the activity of startups in overseas. Let’s create the new era of venture industry thorough YVS!
Run by 10 young entrepreneurs, venture capitalist, and university students with global mind.Looking for global partner (especially China, Singapore, Taiwan) to expand our activity world wide.
