Japan’s CyberAgent Ventures held its annual Rising Expo 2014 event which showcased up-and-coming 15 startups to a crowd of local investors and entrepreneurs . Tokyo-based Space Market, the startup that operates a venue rental marketplace under the same name, won the top prize at this year’s event.
Space Market lists unused or idle venues and allows users to pick one to rent on demand for business needs such as corporate meetings, shareholder meetings, training courses, and other events. Reservations are made online.
In addition to the top prize, the company also won two prizes from the event’s sponsors: the Recruit Career prize and the Sumitomo Fudosan prize. We will keep you update with more about who were chosen as finalists at the event.
