The 3rd cohort of the Social Change Makers, powered by ImpacTech, had their demo day as part of the Nippon Foundation’s #Startline event. The event was broadcasted live on YouTube, according to the social distancing regulations in Japan and was hosted and moderated by ImpacTech’s co-founder, Kineret Karin. 11 startups pitched and were divided into 3 groups according to their sector. 3 teams were selected by the audience as ‘winning teams’ in their group and received prize money as an award. The 3rd cohort of the Social Change Makers has been running since September 2020, with the theme of ‘BEYOND THE DISTANCE’. The demo day is not the end of our program. We still have a few more workshops and events that are coming up very soon.
The winning teams are: byFood, Discover Deep Japan and TPO. We would like to congratulate the rest of the teams for their amazing pitches and performance: atta, CRUST Japan, EKOLOKAL, HELTE, obi Health, Odaiba, weMORI and YURURI.
