SWITCH (Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology), held in Singapore, is attended by a large number of start-up companies and offers a variety of innovation and partner programs. SWITCH 2021 was held on November 8-12 in hybrid (real and online), with 15,000 participants from 160 countries around the world, 400 people on stage, and 170 exhibition booths.
In order to realize the internationalization of the startup ecosystem, we believe that it is essential to attract overseas startups and support organizations to Osaka and create businesses with Osaka companies. This time, we held a webinar entitled "EXPAND TO OSAKA, JAPAN" in SWITCH 2021 to promote the business environment of Osaka and the charm of Osaka. The Kansai Economic Federation explained the efforts of the ABC platform and the possibility of cooperation with member companies.
