For the third consecutive year, I’ve been granted some coveted spots to bring a delegation of five privileged French startups to the prestigious Dash Camp retreat in Japan.
Dash Camp represents one of Asia’s exclusive tech conferences (they have a lot of exclusives there) whose objective is to foster cross-pollination between innovative entrepreneurs and leaders of Japan’s technology giants. It’s an opportunity for French entrepreneurs with global ambitions to explore partnerships, commercial opportunities, or even preliminary m&a groundwork in the Japanese market.
The 2016 edition of Dash Camp will take place next spring in a retreat-like location away from Tokyo, encouraging all participants to disconnect over two days in a somewhat captive environment.
- tech startups younger than 8 years
- aspirations for the Japanese market in some capacity
- domain of activity: connected objects, fin-tech, ad-tech, fashion-tech, mobile gaming, m-commerce, sharing economy
[Note: I organize this delegation on a purely pro bono basis, as both a favor to the VC organizer of Dash Camp and as a way to give something back to the French tech ecosystem. I may also be able to procure a few slots for European (non-French) startups, but no promises.]
