About this Event

Introduction to Zeroth Summit

Since Zeroth was founded in 2016, we have invested in and supported 65 companies to become global AI startups. Just like a startup, we scale fast and in Dec 2018 we expanded the accelerator into three countries: Hong Kong, India (Bangalore), and Japan (Tokyo). Zeroth’s recent partnership with DEEPCORE, a subsidiary of SoftBank Group, puts us at a position for quicker expansion, and we want everyone in our community to benefit from the global networks that comes with it. Which is why in the #Z04 demo day in Japan, we are also going to invite our #Z01-Z03 companies to participate and pitch. To top it off, we will be hosting a 2nd Zeroth AI Conference on the same day, inviting frontier tech VCs and industry experts.

Why Tokyo?

Tokyo is a hotbed for AI and deep tech right now. Zeroth has a strong partnership with DEEPCORE and KERNEL. They are excited by the huge problems the Zeroth founders are working on. Tokyo has a ton of VCs who are looking to investment in global startups. Big corporates like to collaborate with startups, especially AI and DeepTech.
