Innovation Leaders Summit Japan – Virtual Mission March 2021

A call out all Tasmanian innovative tech companies ready to scaleup – your opportunity to pitch directly to Japan’s leading corporations has arrived.

The Tasmanian and the Australian Governments are leading a virtual mission to the Innovation Leaders Summit (ILS) in Tokyo on 8–12 March 2021.

This event connects major Japanese corporations with international startups through facilitated 1-on-1 business matching meetings. The Australian and Tasmanian governments will be sponsoring three places so that the event registration for these companies can be kept to a low AU$220. We are encouraging innovative Tasmanian tech companies currently in scaleup stage that are seeking to expand their strategic business engagement with Japan to submit expressions of interest to join the virtual mission by 6 November 2020.

We are looking for Tasmanian companies who are interested in participating in the annual Innovation Leaders Summit to be held in Japan in March 2021. In 2021 due to Covid-19 the event will be held virtually for non-Japanese companies. The summit includes business matching with major Japanese companies and the opportunity to be selected to participate in T-100.

This is your opportunity to pitch your tech directly to Japan’s leading corporations. The virtual program will be held between 8 and 12 March 2021.

Participants in ILS 2021 will:

  • join ILS Power Matching, a live business matching event featuring 1-on-1 meetings with Japanese corporations and venture capital firms
  • apply to join the ILS Tokyo Challenge 100, an additional business matching opportunity with select major corporations
  • receive tailored support and other in-kind services valued at approximately $7,500 per company (limited to three companies)
  • feature in marketing and promotional collateral.

To express your interest to join our virtual mission or to find out more please contact Andrea Wilson by email Andrea.Wilson@cg.tas.gov.au or by calling +61 3 6165 5219

Remember to submit expressions of interest to join the virtual mission by 6 November 2020.
