At session #59 of Davos Experience in Tokyo held at 100 BANCH,(photo on the left) we discussed “gig economy” with two guests-David Corbin of Tech in Asia Japan and Benjamin Boas.  On Sept. 20 and 21, Tech in Asia Tokyo 2018, a conference for startups, larger businesses, and investors looking to explore the Japanese and larger Asian tech market is held at Hikarie, Shibuya.  I received detailed info. from David about this conference and would like to share with you.  (In fact, I was invited to moderate some session at this conference, but I had no choice but to decline as I had already committed to go to Summer Davos in Tianjin and moderate the session there during this time to my regret.)

 I am sure Tech in Asia Tokyo 2018 will be an exciting event and I would like to find out more from those who attended, as we are planning to have start-up/entrepreneur session as part of our new initiative SINCA.

 This year at Tech-in Asia Tokyo 2018, a host of fantastic speakers including Jason Calacanis, the acclaimed author of “Angel: How to turn 100k into 1 million”, Daisuke Sasaki, the founder of freee – Japan’s most funded fintech company, as well as Achmad Zaky, the founder and CEO of Indonesian ecommerce unicorn Bukalapak, and Yasufumi Hirai, the Chief Information Officer of Rakuten will speak.
