[Event Report] Recalling the Trends in the Startup Industry – fabbit Conference Review

fabbit, which supports start-up companies and operates co-working spaces as a subsidiary of SystemSoft Corporation (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Haruki Yoshio; TSE Code: 7527), held a fabbit Conference last December 16, 2020 and reminisced the 2020 startup industry.

In the first part of the panel discussion, we welcomed VCs and accelerators to reflect on the 2020 funding status and the changes in business models and working styles.          

In the second part, the seminar for listed company presidents, Mr. Akira Ohno, President of Cyber Security Cloud Corporation, which was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s Mothers market in March 2020, spoke about his experiences as an entrepreneur starting from high school days and his trajectory up to the listing.


Part 1: Panel Discussion

Yuichiro Shimizu, CEO, for Startups, Inc.
Batara Eto, Managing Partner, East Ventures
Takashi Kitao, Vice President, CyberAgent Capital, Inc.
Kazuma Ieiri, CEO, CAMPFIRE, Inc.

Michimasa Naka, CEO, Boadwalk Capital Inc.

In the first part of the session, each panelist reviewed the startup industry funding, including the fact that the amount of venture capital invested in 2020 retained, but the amount of corporate venture capital decreased, and that companies are focusing on existing investments rather than adding new ones. He also mentioned that COVID-19 has clearly created online industry opportunities based on the status of each company’s portfolio.

In addition, some startups have changed their business policies, focusing on mobility (e.g., EC and autonomous driving) and changing target audiences. There has been an expansion in the use of crowdfunding and other mechanisms to support startups.

They also introduced that the widespread adoption of telework has changed the working styles by redefining the company as a place to be, and that the characteristics of online and offline work styles have become apparent. They added that in 2021, new services, businesses, and new trends will emerge by balancing online and offline work styles.


Part 2: Seminar by President of Listed Company

Akira Oono, CEO, Cyber Security Cloud, Inc.

Michimasa Naka, CEO, Boadwalk Capital Inc.

In the second part of the seminar for listed company presidents, Mr. Akira Ohno, President of Cyber Security Cloud, Inc., a company that provides cloud-based WAF (Web Application Firewall) services using the world’s leading cyber threat intelligence and AI technology, took the stage to introduce his career as a professional manager and the journey to take Cyber Security Cloud Inc. on March 23, 2020, amidst the COVID-19 crisis.

Looking back on his own career, he talked about how he decided to start his own company when he was a student, the challenges he experienced before going public three years after becoming the president of Cyber Security Cloud, business development in the U.S. where he aims to grow, and the importance of starting early for young business people and entrepreneurs based on his own experiences.

As a global gateway connecting companies in Japan and overseas, fabbit is strengthening support for startups with an eye to expanding into the global market and growing into a unicorn. fabbit continues to hold events to support startup companies and aims to further develop the startup ecosystem.
