Make it big: funded in Japan, accelerated in the US – with R. Chikazawa
Engineer turned entrepreneur, Ryo will share with us his story and dive into the differences and challenges faced by BtoB & BtoC startups. Involved with several of the big tech names, he’ll also discuss his experience dealing with the tech world in both Japan and in the US.
Ryo is the CEO of Contelize, a server-less CMS for enterprises’ multi language contents. They have raised $510k seed round last July and are joining Alchemist Accelerator, a BtoB focused platinum rank accelerator in US, as the first Japanese startup this August.
