We experienced a mind-blowing learning expedition in October 2018 with a mix of startups from Allianz Accelerator and Allianz’ executives.
At Allianz Accelerator we organize this kind of tailor made cross learning expedition with partners all around the world and Tokyo Interaction Center was the best partner for Tokyo.
Beyond the perfect organization of Yumiko, those guys have a great acumen of the business scene in Japan and are super well connected to the right people in multiple domains. They are at home in the Tokyo business scene.
We could meet 12 companies with names like Toyota, Rakuten, NTT DoCoMo Ventures, MUFG, Sumitomo, but also startups accelerators from SoftBank or The University of Tokyo.
It was intense and dense but some of us had time for a morning jog around the Imperial Palace or other team building activities!
We could feel the pulse of the largest city in the world and this cross learning expedition was decisive in tightening our relationship with Toyota Japan.
I strongly recommend this program !
