We are really happy to announce that the IOTA Foundation has been selected by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to participate in their accelerator program, aimed at helping IOTA get established in Japan and connect with local companies to work together on innovative new solutions for the Japanese and the global market.

With the rapid growth of IOTA in Asia and the increasing interest of Asian companies to work with IOTA, we think that this is a unique opportunity for the Foundation to setup a dedicated, staffed office in Tokyo with support from the government and start working with the local ecosystem. Several of the Founders and Core Developers will frequent Japan during the program and the Foundation will setup several Meetups and Events to help kickstart IOTA’s growth in the Japanese community.

The program will last for 2 months, with several events on January 15th, February 23rd and March 16th. More than 18 Japanese companies are participating in this program and will be mentoring the selected companies. We are incredibly excited about this opportunity and are looking forward to work with the various stakeholders.
