Do you need to raise money for the startup you’ve been trying to get off the ground or apply for a Startup visa? For startup founders, nothing is more important than the pitch. Creating a streamlined but informative overview of your startup will help you win over any audience, whether you’re speaking with an investor or important stakeholder.

For this hands-on event, we are excited to welcome Jin Tanaka, Director of Investment at DEEPCORE and a serial entrepreneur, who will share effective techniques for translating your ideas into a compelling, authentic pitch to investors & stakeholders.

Jin’s session will be followed by the 5min pitches of four founders who were granted a Shibuya startup visa for launching their startup in Japan.
