DJW "Asa no Kai" / DJW「朝の会」with Makoto Takeda, Managing Director, bistream (Berlin, 25.01.2016)
It was our great pleasure to welcome 40 participants to our first Asa no Kai of 2016 in Berlin.
The focus of this Asa no Kai was the start-up ecosystem in Berlin. Berlin has been experiencing an impressive influx of talents and capital in the past years, especially in the tech start-up sector. The total investment in Berlin’s start-ups this year has already surpassed that of London’s. The city is demographically young with 25% of the population aged under 25 years providing an attractive asset of young talents.
What makes Berlin attractive to founders and investors? What potential does the business ecosystem Berlin have for Japanese companies in very different stages of development, both established businesses and start-ups? What are the factors for sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship today? Can Japanese and German start-ups work together to enhance each other? Those and other questions were answered by our speaker Mr. Makoto Takeda, Managing Director of bistream UG.
