Since 2014, Leave a Nest has been promoting real-tech seed acceleration program TECH PLANTER, which eventually became one of the largest startup ecosystems in Asia Pacific region. To date, we have discovered and incubated 598 startups in Japan and 627 startups overseas.
Leave a Nest Singapore was established in 2010 as one of our core oversea subsidiaries. Now it evolves into a hub in Southeast Asia, and also being responsible for business development in Singapore and ASEAN 5 countries (Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Indonesia).
In order for startups to expand their business into rapidly growing Southeast Asian market from Japan, they must go overcome various hurdles. We realized through TECH PLANTER program that they face challenges; such as, establishment of oversea branches, collaboration with local companies and governments, and recruitment of passionate local people. Usually, startups just started their activities in Southeast Asia does not have any expertise and networks. That is why we established our program to solve such problems.
Leave a Nest and Leave a Nest Singapore, we will provide L-HUB (L-nest Innovation HUB) SG as an office space for startups passionate in solving global challenges. This will promote collaboration between Japanese and local startups in terms of technology. We will also support the entry of Japanese startups into Southeast Asians market by leveraging our incubation expertise we have developed to date, as well as our network with private companies, government agencies, and universities.
ACSL, the first startup Leave a Nest Singapore has made business alliance this time is one of the selected finalists at the 6th Deep Tech Grand Prix 2018 in TECH PLANTER program, and received Nihon Unisys AWARD.
