Usually Asiajin covers what people are doing and have achieved in Japanese and Asian tech communities, but today I’m writing something about what I and my friends will do for accelerating the communities here in Tokyo.
Takeshi Hirano[J] from TechCrunch Japan[J], Hiro Maeda from NetPrice.com and I will jointly organize a networking event titled “Startup Dating“, which aims at giving opportunities to meet start-up entrepreneurs and tech people to them.
Start-up companies are required to have potential business ideas, money and skillful human resources to achieve what they have in their minds. Probably founders already have great ideas, private equities like venture capital firms and angel investors will help them financially. How about human resources? Employment advertising needs high expense in this industry, if you could find a guy, he or she would be not always a person with whom you can share your dream.
On the other hand, tech people are also making their efforts to find good business opportunities. If they meet a good business innovator with whom they can work with cooperativeness, they can enjoy working every day.
In the evening of June 22 at Digital Garage head office, we will have the preliminary edition of the networking event in association with Open Network Lab, the Japanese version of Y Combinator (See this Serkan Toto’s TechCrunch article about Open Network Lab.)
If you’re interested in attending as an entrepreneur or a developer, please visit the event’s website and fill a form placed in the event announcement blog posts.
