Event: Echelon 2012 Japan Satellite In Tokyo This Friday (April 27)

Singapore-based tech blog e27 is holding Echelon 2012 on June 11-12, a startup event the site calls the biggest of its kind in Asia.

As in previous years, Echelon will take place in Singapore (the first one was organized back in 2010), and the main event is preceded by a number of lead-up events in various countries.

These so-called Satellites already took place in the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Taiwan. The goal here is to identify cool startups for the Startup Marketplace exhibition at Echelon proper in June.

And now, it’s Japan’s turn.

Here are all details for the Echelon 2012 Japan Satellite event:
