KGAP+ Batch5 – Israel Challenge – [Online]2021/06/30

KGAP+ (Keihanna Global Acceleration Program Plus) will hold a preliminary round in Israel for Batch 5.

KGAP+ is a startup support program that attracts promising startups from Japan and abroad with the goal of conducting PoC and pilot tests in collaboration with large Japanese enterprises as well as overseas expansion. So far, 48 startups from 8 countries have participated in the program, and 83% of them have been able to implement PoC or enter into collaborative discussions with the program’s support.

The “Israel Challenge” is a stage for candidates from Israel, who have passed a highly competitive pre-selection process with the help of IIA (Israel Innovation Authority), a KGAP+ global partner. The startups will pitch their innovative technologies and services to take part in the Batch 5.

After the event, there will be a breakout session where you can have a Q&A session with the startups and interact with them to the fullest. We look forward to seeing you there!
