Startup Ecosystem City

Kyoto (Kyoto Prefecture and Kyoto City)

Kyoto has a diverse industrial structure, ranging from traditional industries nurtured by its long history to cutting-edge industries that incorporate technologies developed at universities and companies. Since the beginning of the Meiji era (1868-1912), many venture companies with original technologies have been born over the generations, earning the city of “Venture company.” Kyoto is also a city of innovation, where tradition and innovation have been developed in harmony and fusion with different cultures. While the world is in the sense of stagnation, Kyoto will take the lead in attracting entrepreneurs and start-up companies from Japan and abroad and by blending with its history, traditions, and culture as “Start-up Capital.”
