【WHAT IS JAPAN TECH LEADERS SUMMIT?】
Japan Tech Leaders Summit is an invite-only conference for corporate decision makers and deep tech startup founders. The summit is an international event that brings together English speaking, internationally minded Japanese corporates and startups with foreign companies to build new business opportunities. The event will be held entirely in English.

【WHO ATTENDS?】
1. Investment/M&A/partnerships/innovation heads from local and overseas corporations with immediate needs for collaboration with startups.
2. Startup CEOs with sought-after technologies from Japan and abroad that are perfect candidates to match corporate needs, and younger technical founders with potential to build the next disruptive deep tech startups.

【THEME】
The theme of the summit is “Industry 5.0” and will cover the next generation in AI, blockchain, and robotics. Demand for such deep tech is skyrocketing in Japan due to struggling Japanese corporates and government pressure to address an aging population and declining workforce. Corporates are spending more on innovation by partnering with and investing in deep tech startups, and startups are flourishing.

【テーマ】
Spring 2018 のテーマは「Industry 5.0」。⼈⼿不⾜の深刻化は、国内だけでなく海外でも同様に起き始めています。オートメーション技術の基盤でもあるAIやロボティクス領域に前向きな⽇本市場への関⼼が高まっており、今後世界の労働環境を⽀える「技術ハブ」と「初期マーケット」の役割を果たすことが期待されます。そうした日本のニーズにどのような分野で海外の技術がマッチするのか、最先端のトレンドをふまえながらビジネスチャンスを探っていきます。

【コンテンツ】
パネルディスカッション、ネットワーキングを予定しております。

【オーディエンス参加】Industry 5.0:イノベーションの次の10年
政府が推している、最先端技術が叶える豊かな社会「Society 5.0」が実現するまでにどのようなビジネス、戦略、テクノロジーが主役になるのか考える時間とします。大企業とスタートアップが組んだ場合の事業領域や戦略を複数名に分かれてディスカッションいただきます。


【パネルディスカッション】今後のイノベーションは海外連携が必須!「ヨーロッパやアメリカの最先端技術」

今後、日本におけるIndustry 5.0の重要な要素として、海外の中でもとくにヨーロッパは重要になると見ています。ヨーロッパやアメリカならではの最先端技術の事例交え、それらは日本にどう取り込めるのかお話しいただきます。


【パネルディスカッション】ロボットとAIの今後
感情に関するロボットのリサーチが日本では進んでいるように、国内外の最新技術が日本でのロボット関連ビジネスにどのように応用できるか探ります。


【パネルディスカッション】世界でまだ数少ないブロックチェーンビジネス、分野として生き残るのか?
国内外の大手企業がスタートアップと組んで創出した事例をもとに、ブロックチェーンの新規事業についてディスカッションのほか、ブロックチェーン導入にあたって気をつけるポイント等お話しいただきます。


【パネルディスカッション】自動化による働き方改革のビジネスづくり
現状、RPAはシンプルな業務に取り入れられやすいですが、AIもセットで実装することで、より複雑なこともこなせるようになります。導入している企業の事例をもとに、どの業務から進展させるといいのか見ていきます。
