For Speed Dating, startups can book five minutes with each investor – just enough time to introduce yourselves and briefly pitch your idea. If you’re looking for qualified feedback on your ideas or funding for your next round, this is an opportunity you would want to capitalize on. You never know if this could be the break you’ve been looking for.

Similarly, Office Hours follows the same set up. Startups will too, get five-minutes with corporations like Sony, Kao and ICMG for a quick chat to get some thoughts on your business ideas and explore future partnerships.

Needless to say, it’ll be a fast ride so make sure you come well prepared!


Speed Dating and Office Hours will take place on both days of the conference, September 8 and 9. The schedule for both sessions can be found here:
