Prior to the coronavirus crisis, the world had already been facing serious challenges regarding the well-being of the planet, the ecosystem, and humanity. While government-led models can help us gradually make progress towards Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), startups have their role to play.
For this inspiring talk, we will bring together three innovative Japan-based startups that are addressing today’s social and environmental challenges through groundbreaking ideas. They will share their stories about challenges they encountered when developing a solution and adjusting it to the market needs.
Join us on July 8th to learn how their idea to create a better future has evolved into the real product!
