KGAP+ (Keihanna Global Acceleration Program Plus), an acceleration program launched in 2019 from the Keihanna Research Complex Project, will carry out a “Special Edition” program together with the global innovation partners, to consider a paradigm shift in and after the coronavirus pandemic and support startups taking challenges for innovations.

Following a series of online events where startups and support organizations in each region make a pitch or presentation, “KGAP+ Day” will be held on July 29th and 10 startups selected from the series will be pitching. The KGAP+ Day combines the finale with the beginning of a regular program of KGAP+, namely, the startups will start their journey to collaborative PoCs with Japanese companies. Supports and mentoring will be provided until the end of October.

The Special Edition #4 is pitching by Israeli startups. Around 5 startups at recommendation of IIA, Israel Innovation Authority, inspired by the previous webinar “Israel -Part1”, will present advanced technologies and unique services. Please join us as an audience!
