今回はハードウェアスタートアップのためのオンラインプラットフォームを提供していHardware Massive を招いてイベントを開催いたします。オンラインコミュニティーがスタートアップカルチャーに与える影響についてスタートアップと語り合うチャンスです。



We're joining event co-organizer Makers Boot Camp, the leading hardware accelerator, to bring you this event to bring the Osaka & Kyoto communities together.

Who can support startups online and what kind of support can startups get? How can we make a real collaboration together within the international hardware startup online community?Join our next meetup if you would like to know more about digital initiatives that can benefit startups.

We invited Hardware Massive's Founder and CEO to bring some insights from his expertise in US and China, and illustrate some cases of how collaboration between international players can help startups to develop a new project.
