TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NANO OPT Media, Inc., sponsor of Interop Tokyo and other major events in Japan in the fields of advanced science and technology will hold a new event dubbed "FiSH," an acronym for the Fukuoka International Startup Hub. FiSH is scheduled for two days from January 31 to February 1, 2017 at the Fukuoka International Congress Center in Fukuoka City.
FiSH will provide business matching opportunities geared towards producing innovations. The event will gather entrepreneurs, corporations, start-up companies, media, investors and more—not only from Japan, but from locations throughout the world—all under one roof.
FiSH will be held in Fukuoka City. For three consecutive years, Fukuoka has held the top position in business start-ups among all major cities in Japan. In fact, the Japanese government has designated Fukuoka as a National Strategic Special Zone for Global Startups and Job Creation, under which the government provides policy-based incentives to entrepreneurs who launch businesses in Fukuoka whether aimed at Japan or the rest of the world.
Despite the large number of well-known start-up events held globally, FiSH has set its sights on going toe-to-toe with them as a world class event.
