Events that build partnerships and help brush up your skills

 We hold seminars, Q&A sessions and exchange and cooperation events regularly at Startup Cafe premises to provide answers to entrepreneurs’ questions and worries. Our events are attended by participants from all backgrounds, including people who want to learn about the newest technology and new business models, people who want to hear about entrepreneurs’ past experiences, people who want to learn new skills and tips towards entrepreneurship, as well as people who want to find new partners to do business with. Most of the events are provided free of charge and with no registration needed. Feel free to take part in our seminars and events to learn new skills related to your business and to get to know new partners after work or on your day off. The events are also a great chance to take a peek into a field previously unknown to you!

Helping people take their first steps towards entrepreneurship

 Startup Cafe’s events are mostly organised by Fukuoka City’s entrepreneurship support organisations and private business owners who want to help new businesses and startups. The events are not only for learning new things, but also to to build relationships that help cross the hurdles on the way to managing a successful business. There are no requirements for participating, so feel free to take part in our events at any time.
