Platform construction - Providing innovation opportunities

We aim to be the platform where startups, large companies, support organizations, government agencies, and media can network to create synergies that improve the Startup Ecosystem.

Deloitte Tohmatsu Venture Summit

We believe that innovation is the key to driving business success and revitalizing the Japanese and the world economies in the 21st century. Our mission is to support, connect and cooperate with startups and corporations in order to transform bold ideas into tangible, innovative solutions. By matching corporations to startups with cutting edge technologies and disruptive ideas, we help startups scale and help corporations address problems they could not solve by themselves and remain competitive in the ever changing landscape.

Our annual Deloitte Tohmatsu Venture Summit welcomes the key players in the Japanese Startup Ecosystem, coming from large corporations, VCs, media sources, accelerators and startups, across industries and services. Thus creating business aliances and interactive networking opportunities.

In 2017, we will be inviting top edge startups from around the world. We are selecting candidates from the most important Startup Ecosystems globally: Silicon Valley, New York, Canada, Singapore, India, Israel, and the European Union.

Join us for an opportunity to meet Japanese large corporations seeking for exciting new ideas and technologies, VCs, media and startups from all over the world.

Nationwide Startup Day

Nationwide Startup Day『全国StartupDay

Most of the entrepreneurial activity in Japan is concentrated in Tokyo, meaning the opportunities for entrepreneurs in rural areas are limited.  Through holding the Nationwide Startup Days, we have learned that Japan is lacking a structure to provide risk capital and business opportunities to entrepreneurs in rural areas.

In the Nationwide Startup Day, we host panel discussions by prominent venture capitalists and staff from large companies to show the direction that startups should aim for.  Startups also pitch in the event creating opportunities for financing and business collaboration. 


Release Pitch is a presentation event for startups to present their new products and services. This is an opportunity for startups launching new products and services to get noticed by the press.

1 day CFO training: Finance consultation for entrepreneurs

In the CFO training course, we advise CFOs and give them individual advice on business planning and capital management. Starting with series A funding, Tohmatsu Venture Support tries to establish a seed funding round with a minimum of 100 million yen. The amount of money a startup can make during funding has a large impact on the options the startup has with its business model.


Date and time: held once a month from 14:00 to 17:00

Location: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo 2-2-28 Higashi Shinagawa Samurai Startup Island 


PR School: improving startup PR

Many startup managers are responsible for their own publicity. Because of this, managers frequently send press releases that are hard for the media to understand or know what to do with.
