“Co-creating the future with Japanese Corporations”
 JP/AU sharing experiences
Since its inception, J-Bridge has a strong focus on promoting collaborations (business / technical / financial) between Japanese Corporations and innovative Australian companies. By means of curated matchmaking, many Japanese member companies have met with diverse Australian companies which have resulted in various outcomes right from signing of NDAs, demonstrations/trials, exploring investments to name a few – in Australia and beyond. This spans across numerous sectors such as Carbon neutral, Smart City, Agri-tech, Retail, Defence, Circular Economy etc.

Whether you are a Japanese Corporate or an ambitious Australian startup who are looking at new opportunities and have a “co-creation” mindset – especially in the Australia-Japan innovation corridor, this event is for you!
As we draw towards the end of the Japanese FY, this event will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about J-Bridge, hear from Japanese Corporates and Australian Startups who have joined J-Bridge and their experiences.
