On Saturday, November 28, 2020, as part of a project* commissioned by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Leave a Nest will hold a roundtable** in which top players from government agencies, VCs, and accelerators that support startups in the deep tech field with research and development in 6 Southeast Asian countries will be invited to give a bird's eye view of the startup ecosystem in their respective countries.（Apply from here）
In Southeast Asia (which includes Singapore, ranked 17th in the world for startup ecosystems***), the formation of an ecosystem to foster startups in the field of deep tech with research and development is accelerating. How then should Japan, which boasts of a strong foundation for manufacturing, build up a relationship with the rapidly developing Southeast Asian deep tech startups?
In this event, government agencies, VCs, and accelerators representing seven countries (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and Japan) will give presentations about their startup ecosystems and the strategies that they have to support these ecosystems. We will also hold a Roundtable with the same members to discuss how the Southeast Asian and Japanese startup ecosystems can work together, making bridges across countries to create new markets.
