Osaka, 6 July 2019 – Startupbootcamp, the leading global network of industry-focused accelerators, today announces their international tour to meet with growth-stage startups – known as scaleups – looking to expand their businesses into the Japanese market, increase their revenues and access funding opportunities.

The Osaka program will target and scout growth-stage Smart Cities & Living scaleups across a wide range of industries including Mobility, Living, Tourism, and Health & Wellbeing.

Scaleups who attend these FastTrack events will learn more about the program, and are 20% more likely to be invited to the final selection days.
