IVS went digital for the first time last year with the aim was to create an experience that was better than offline. This year, we're upping the quality of the sessions, personalizing networking, and without the physical limitations, we're able to showcase more international talent at our pitch contest than ever. IVS offers unparalleled opportunities for entrepreneurs who are up for the challenge.
Infinity Ventures Summit (IVS) is an invitation-only conference that brings together thousands of entrepreneurs, executives, and investors in internet technology. Our mission is to be "the spark of the next generation." Thirteen years after its launch in fall of 2007, IVS has evolved to become the largest network of internet company pioneers in the Japan+ region who are leading the industry into a new era.
From digital panels to online fireside chats, IVS speakers are leaders of industry. They share stories from the frontlines, industry trends, and learnings that you can't hear anywhere else. IVS 2021 Spring will offer 40 virtual events for you to make the most of your experience.
By being invitation-only, IVS is able to carefully select and match participants for high-quality networking. We lay the groundwork for you to find the optimal opportunities for your business.
IVS LaunchPad provides a life-changing opportunity for startups. With hundreds of applicants and a rigorous screening process, investors are introduced to the most promising, innovative young startups in the world.
