Introducing the Startupbootcamp Scale Osaka FastTrack Webinars, where mature startups, known as scaleups, from around the world have the chance to meet the Scale Osaka team and our partners. These FastTrack webinars are a window to meeting and potentially working with some of Japan’s most influential companies. Join us online and learn more about the Scale Osaka program and the partners who are looking for Smart City and Living scaleups to collaborate and build PoCs with.

The Startupbootcamp FastTrack Webinars are informal events where we introduce the Startupbootcamp Scale Osaka program in detail, and introduce our Japanese corporate partners. We will be outlining what it means to scale to Japan, what our partners are looking for, what opportunities lie ahead and opening up a Q&A session for scaleups to take part in.


For the Scale Osaka program, we will be hosting three webinars in the three key timezones across the world. We are currently accepting applications to all three of them. View them on our Program Page.

  • Live Q&A session with us and our corporate partners – multi-billion dollar companies and household names in Japan: Hankyu Corporation, Dentsu, JR West Innovations, JT, The Yomiuri Shimbun, Sakura Internet and SMBC.
  • Early-bird consideration – attending our Webinar gives you priority consideration by our partners, with a high chance of immediately setting up a meeting to start discussions towards selection, & potentially running pilot projects together.
