To globally bolster Osaka’s presence as one of the two major centers of Japan, our city strives to fulfill a role in propelling the country’s growth. Hence, we are committed to advance initiatives for startup support and innovation creation. The Umekita area is home to various activity-oriented facilities and exchange facilities; and it also exhibits renowned features such as entrepreneurship education coordinated by universities, overseas acceleration programs, and other innovative developments. These all complement Osaka as one of the top urban destinations in Japan that genuinely integrates global startups. Moreover, the Osaka-Kansai World Expo will be held in the year of 2025. The exposition under the theme “Designing Future Society for Our Lives” will also showcase the “People’s Living Lab” concept to a worldwide audience. To maximize the impacts of this prestigious occurrence, we will exert our best abilities to attract “People-Goods-Investments-Technologies” from around the world.
