Mobile Monday – Sept 13 – A Super Deluxe Affair

Update: Wow..!!! We had almost 250 people crash the doors for a huge Kanpai followed by a great line-up of speakers and merry mixer for the Start-Up Dating segment, a super time by all accounts, hat-tip to Jim for the Flickr set! We have uploaded the presentations – see .PPT links beside each speakers title below – and thought best to post reminders for mentioned upcoming events with Venturehacks and on Sept. 15th as well as This Week in Startups – Tokyo on the 22nd. Congrats to our Tesla joy-ride winners too..!!

Thanks to all who made the effort to attend, a big shout-out to the many EU GateWay Programme folks who are visiting this week, also for the energetic support from all our “Friends of MoMo Tokyo” and of course to the entire community who continue to make running this show a true pleasure. A fantastic way to celebrate our 50th event in Japan!
