Japan Railway East (JRE) is building a startup ecosystem “TAKANAWA GATEWAY CITY”, due to open late March 2025. The city is transformed to an experimental field for startups to test their ideas in the city of Takanawa Gateway, aiming to support the creation of new solutions focusing on environment, mobility, and healthcare. The site is thought to welcome 100,000 visitors daily, making it Japan's largest experimental site for social implementation.

The “TAKANAWA GATEWAY Link Scholars’ Hub” Lab is a lab dedicated for research and development in the “environmental life sciences” field, kickstarting support for the long-term research and development of deep tech areas that require time until social implementation. Along with reducing the initial investment fee, the demonstrations in the city and co-creation with various companies, universities, and governments aims to accelerate the global startups’ expansion into Japan.

The event on September 13th 2024 will showcase the space at Takanawa Gateway City and provide networking opportunities with Japanese corporations ranging from food tech, IT, manufacturing, chemicals etc that are interested in collaborating with overseas startups. There will be an opportunity for the startups to pitch towards these companies.
