SF Japan Night VI Semi-Finals

Attended SF Japan Night VI event held at Daiwa Conference Room. A list of startups that pitched is as follows.

My overall impression was that English presentation given by each startup got a whole lot better than previous SF Japan Night event where my startup Coworkify was chosen as a semi-finalist. Most of speakers were actually quite fluent in English and content of presentation was beyond my expectation.

I think it’s worth mentioning that there was a couple of hardware related startups like Fukushima Wheel, Fourbeat, Ring delivering good presentation. I see that’s one way Japanese startup really can show its strength and differentiate itself from competitors from the U.S. and Asia.
