The University of Tokyo

Have you heard of Todai to Texas? If you noticed these weird guys in past SXSW -- 3D printable prosthetic hands, a human-ridable exoskeleton, shower tent which completely purifies used water, or pool table with visually-effected surface -- THAT'S US! It is an official program by The University of Tokyo, a.k.a. Todai, letting startups come to Austin to showcase their products. In this session, our 2017's participants will showcase their products after we discuss what universities and local communities can do to promote startup ecosystems, especially for young, talented student entrepreneurs.
