The theme of the fabbit Conference on Wednesday, December 12 is "Startup Ecosystem"-Summary of 4.
What does the phrase "startup ecosystem" bring to mind?
In Japan, many high-fundraising startups and venture companies have emerged, and the trend is expected to continue.
Behind the rise of such startups is an "ecosystem" of players supporting the startup community in Japan and around the world.
Venture capitals that support funding, accelerators that create new business using the assets of large companies, service providers that offer the infrastructure startups need, seminars that share know-how for growth - the quality and quantity of these supporting players continues to grow. In the midst of this proliferation, 2019 saw the emergence of a new question - what do these supporters need to do to be chosen by startups?
Our last fabbit Conference of 2019 will bring startups and the VCs and accelerators that support them together to review various happenings in the startup ecosystem in 2019 and look ahead to what 2020 holds.
