You can register for the Pitch + Networking session on July 26 where the Japanese delegation will reverse-pitch the innovation they are looking for and how they want to work with you. You must register for this event to be considered for the one-on-one meetings. Both are FREE, but it’s imperative to prepare well in advance.
