Startup Academia Meetup Vol. 2 "Practical Startup Finance: The Battle of Capital Policy Comments

*The event will now be held entirely online.

The “Innovation Design Platform (IdP)” was launched by four universities participating in the Startup Ecosystem Tokyo Consortium (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Keio University, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, and the University of Tokyo), together with partner institutions in the consortium and other platforms, to foster and foster a global university-based startup ecosystem in Tokyo and the surrounding region. The “Innovation Design Platform (IdP)” aims to foster and nurture a global university startup ecosystem in Tokyo and other regions.

We are holding a meetup study session to strengthen the network of information sharing among the parties involved in the IdP ecosystem and to create an environment in which university-launched ventures can be born. Of course, we welcome those who are not involved in IdP to participate in order to foster the ecosystem.

For the second meeting, we will invite Mr. Tasuku Yamaoka, a certified public accountant and representative director of Shikumiya Corporation, who is involved in management support and IPO support for startups. Mr. Yamaoka is the author of “Practical Startup Finance: Impressions on Capital Policy,” which was serialized on the blog service “note” and received an unprecedented response in the startup world.

There are many well-known finance books for startups, such as Tetsuya Isozaki’s “Finance for Starting a Business,” but this book is a collection of case studies up to going public, and it is a superb finance book with no analogues! This book is a book of case studies leading up to the listing of a company, and it is a superb finance book!

In this meetup, we will learn about startup finance that you should consider for R&D ventures, hard tech, and deep tech startups in academia while having a “capital policy feedback session” with Mr. Yamaoka.

This is a very valuable opportunity for university-launched venture professionals, academic entrepreneurs, VCs, people in the private sector who are practicing or envisioning collaboration with university-launched ventures, and CVCs, please join us.
