Update from Japan
10 IoT start-ups from our COE spent a week in Tokyo participating at largest electronics show with IoT theme in Japan. This was a huge show where exhibitors spent in excess of $6mn on their stalls alone and showcased their latest wares in – IoT domain - sensors, solutions, robots, Artificial intelligence, Virtual reality stores, Wearable’s, Connected cars, etc. Seeing some of this stuff in real and toying with Robots was quite an exhilarating experience. Global media is still playing capsules from this event including BBC http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-37568222
This year CEATEC was promoting innovative start-ups from Israel, Vietnam and India. Pls note only Indian start-up companies got paid trip where as others had to pay for everything – travel, stalls... On 7th Oct, we did a India day of sorts with no investments and with cooperation from METI. This included presentations by Takeyari san and Nasscom's Director for Global Trade, Gagan Sabharwal, followed by panel discussion. Thereafter our startup companies got 10 min each to present their solutions. Some presentations were really very good while some were tech heavy. In run up to this day these companies were taken to places in Tokyo and went through dedicated match-making sessions. METI was also keen that something comes out of this engagement because they were paying for it.
