What we're about

Tokyo Tech Startups (TTS) is a group of entrepreneurs/engineers who have a strong interest in tech and startups. We share a common goal to grow Tokyo’s tech/startup ecosystem.

Our mission is to foster and serve Tokyo’s tech startup ecosystem and bring awareness to the growing startup culture in Japan in order to make Tokyo the startup hub of Asia.

What we do

1. Tokyo Startup Pitch Night

A pitch and networking event held in English once a month. People working on early-stage startups present their product, service or business ideas to get an opportunity to get feedback on their business ideas, raise awareness, seek talent and ask for help to grow their product. We allot the second half of the event to networking to allow members to discover cutting edge products, mingle with talented individuals, and even stumble upon their next career opportunity.

2. Facilitating collaborative entrepreneurship

We run Facebook group where we share insights, latest news, startup stories and much more to foster open collaboration in local startup ecosystem to make an impact and help each other.

TTSとは

TTSはテクノロジーとスタートアップに強い関心を持っている起業家/エンジニアのコミュニティーです。東京を拠点とし、日本のスタートアップエコシステムの成長を支援することを目標にし、ピッチイベントなどを2016年から開催してきました。他のエンジニア組織や企業様と力を会わせてアジアのシリコンバレーを作ることを目指しています。

主な活動内容

2016年以来月に1度、ピッチナイトというイベントを英語で行なっています。スタートアップや起業家が新しいサービスや過去の教訓をコミュニティーにシェアし、その後ネットワーキングのイベントへ移る形を取らせて頂いています。参加者はスタートアップやテクノロジーに携わっているエンジニア、デザイナー、企業家や投資家です。

ピッチイベントは毎回3−6社が英語で5分間ずつプレゼンを行い、製品、サービス、ビジネスアイデアのフィードバックを参加者から受けます。

活動履歴

2016年以来東京じゅうの企業や東京都の場所を借りながら16回イベントを行ってきました。先日メンバー数が2000人を突破し、過去にはYahoo Japan, Finc,SmartNews,東京都などの協力でイベントを開催させていただきました。

コミュニティーの刺激のために毎回イベントスペースを変えていますので、今後も東京の多くのテック会社と共に日本のスタートアップ業界の活性化に向けて頑張ります。
