Experiencing the Reality of Start-ups in my 2nd year at OU (Entrepreneurship Speaker Series)

2016-6-24 (Fri) 18:00 - 19:30

For this seminar, we've invited SAKAMOTO Takuya of Start Outs, which has gained attention through viral media "Whats," to share with us his experiences on entering Osaka University's School of Engineering Science, his visit to Silicon Valley, and starting up his own business.

A flag bearer for OU ventures will return to his alma mater. When did this OU student decide to start a business and fly away to Tokyo?

This seminar is free to attend. We hope to see you there.
