【How to start /スタートアップの始め方】

今回のMeetupは 京都工芸繊維大学 KYOTO Design Labが主催する Kyoto Startup Summer School 2018 の共同イベントです!今回は関西で活躍するスタートアップをお呼びしてスタートアップの始め方について内情をお話しいただきます。


There are so many startups in the world, but very rarely do we get to hear the honest, detailed stories of how entrepreneurs get started. In this meetup, we invite 3 entrepreneurs from the local area to share their beginnings and provide insights on taking that first step. There will also be a networking session to connect with other passionate aspiring entrepreneurs.

This joint meetup is organized by Makers Boot Camp and the KYOTO Design Lab as part of Kyoto Startup Summer School 2018.

Note: Event starts 30 minutes earlier than usual
