Silicon Valley - New Japan Summit 2018 at Stanford University

Last Monday and Tuesday, the Stanford Silicon Valley - New Japan Project hosted the third annual Silicon Valley - New Japan Summit here at Stanford University, in partnership with Ishin USA.

The first day featured panels and keynotes that shared tips and anecdotes aimed at helping Japanese companies better harness Silicon Valley, and a full second day of startup pitches and booths for Japanese firms and Silicon Valley startups to meet and engage in business development.

With nearly 600 attendees, this year’s summit has been our largest so far.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to making this event a success. A special thank you goes out to our co-hosts, Ishin USA for their continuous support, and to Amanda Stoeckicht for her efforts in organizing this conference.

A longer event report is forthcoming.
