Fortunately, we have companies from all industry (mobile, ICT, Advertising, Manufacturing, Chemical, Real Estate etc) so it is likely that you will find potential fit. When registering, please fill in the comment section with brief description of your business and target customer base.Please make sure you come and hear the Japanese pitch session so that when you are meeting them, they wont have to repeat what they said. Also, networking session at the Meetup is very important. Few munites of chat with delegation before you meeting will go along way.
