Special Report: 2011 Summary of ICT start-up accelerators
Japan Venture Research Inc. (hereafter JVR, Akira Kitamura-CEO and Kohei Hayashi-CEO) conducted an analysis and compiled a summary on the status of thriving ICT start-up accelerators in 2011.
In 2011, we observed a boom in ICT start-ups, which had not been seen since 2000. Various events including start-up seminars targeting young people, business plan competitions, and educational programs took place with success in different locations throughout the year.
Our November 2011 report indicated growing trends of ICT-focused boutique VCs and ICT start-ups establishing a new ecosystem, in which they support and invest in start-ups through holding events and providing incubation offices. In this report, we summarized trends associated with these activities up to the end of 2011.
