Our second edition took place jointly with Mobile Monday Tokyo and Tokyo 2.0.
Mobile Monday started its history in Helsinki, Finland, it’s literally a tech community devoted to remarkable topics on the mobile industry and has a periodical presentation event on Monday evenings in many cities on the globe.
Meanwhile, Tokyo 2.0 is a tech community which has been launched by British guy Andrew Shuttleworth. Nowadays it’s organized by the steering committee, focuses on timely web-related topics and invites a few people to present at a monthly event.
Most of people attending these events are usually non-Japanese because they were founded by non-Japanese, In terms of encouraging Japanese tech start-ups to be approved among the international tech community, we think it is very important for Japanese and non-Japanese to share the same opportunity and experience through meet-up events. That’s why we decided to have a joint edition with them.
Mobile Monday Tokyo and Tokyo 2.0 brought a bunch of attendees that evening, more than 200 people were at the event. It was a very hot event, and hot in the air temperature at the venue, too. We apologize you for any inconvenience.
Probably, in the future, we’ll have another joint meet-up with them again.
Special thanks to: Lars Cosh-Ishii, Andrew Shutleworth, Paul Papadimitriou and Steve Nagata
