8 deep tech startups (4 from Thailand and another 4 from Japan) pitch (for more information check below)

Deep Tech Startups are emerging in various countries and up until now it has mainly been incubated within their own countries. Once they are ready to expand overseas, the deep tech startups expand to the target market with their own initiatives or by support from the government. This kind of support has usually been brought by the governments of respective countries. Such initiatives have been initiated by each country before the pandemic and it is resuming its activities as borders are reopening.

In this session, we hear from Dr. Tarit Nimannwudipong (TH) and Dr. Yuko Ueno (JP) about how private sectors from both countries focusing on deep tech can play crucial roles in connecting the deep tech ecosystem in each country in a collective manner. In addition to their sharing, we are also inviting 4 deep tech startups’ each from Thailand and Japan to share about their plan to expand their business overseas.These startups are chosen based on their interest to expand overseas (Thailand for Japan startups and Japan for Thailand startups) as well as their TECH PLANTER alumni status and recommendations from each company.

This session will give a good overview on how deep tech startups from each country can expand their business from their mother country. We will discuss how private sectors from each country will work towards creating the market together with the deep tech startups by combining business of startups with existing corporations.
