The presenters of the four companies that went through the selection process are up-and-coming young people, mostly in their 20s. Many startups in Japan are starting up their businesses with the aim of going global, but those startups in Southeast Asia have high growth potential, not only in terms of English language skills, also in terms of the fact that many of them have business models that are globally oriented from the beginning. If they are well matched, potential investments can be expected.
