Each selected startup will present a lightning talk on a science-based technology they are bringing to market, including at least one compelling use case. All presenting startups are expected to exhibit during lunch immediately following the startup presentations. See below for application requirements and follow them closely as we expect a lot of interest for this competitive Opp. Selected startups will need to submit a slide deck as per guidelines to be provided, and also participate in a virtual dry run as needed, a few weeks before the event, so make sure that you have the bandwidth to meet all deadlines.
The events are attended by ILP's Japan corporate members and other executives of Global 1000 corporations and the innovation ecosystem, and provide an excellent forum for establishing connections for potential partnerships and collaboration.
MIT will reimburse for travel expenses for 1 rep (speaker), sufficient to cover coach travel, local transport, and hotel (details will be forthcoming). We will advise on the latest for a visa application, if needed at the time.
