Conference / Convention
The Together, Go Big Startup Summit 2022
The Together, Go Big Startup Summit 2022, held at the Roppongi Academyhills Hills Club on July 5 and 6, 2022, was the largest innovation conference event between Japan and Taiwan in recent years and the first large-scale event of its kind in Japan.
With digital transformation at its core, the summit attracted more than 30 of Taiwan’s elite startups and provided an opportunity for participants to exchange knowledge and information with key Japanese companies and influencers.
Although the entry of foreign visitors had been restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the relaxation of business entry restrictions made it possible for many officials from Taiwan to participate, making it a very lively event.
Many participants stayed in Roppongi before and after the event (REMM Roppongi and other hotels), and it seems they enjoyed Tokyo and Roppongi to the fullest.
