About the Event

Do you know that 1 in 3 revenues can come from partnerships? For startup founders, there are many things to consider when doing their businesses like how to achieve validations, gain faster traction, and how to penetrate the market with limited resources. One of the ways is partnering with other businesses. By utilizing collaborations startups can achieve initial revenue, alongside the opportunities to get more traction, proof of concept, funding, and many more. But most founders simply don't utilize the full potential for collabs and turn them into long-term partnerships We will also have a networking session with the Founder Institute Japan's Local Leaders and mentors after the panel discussion.
