INNOVATION LEADERS SUMMIT (ILS) was first held in 2014 with the support of 30 promoters and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan (METI). Its goal is to match major corporations’ resources with the ideas and technologies of startups to create new and innovative business through business and capital alliances, M&A and other means. Last year, 700 promising startups recommended by the ILS Advisory Board—composed of approx. 100 people from major foreign and domestic venture capital firms and other companies—and 103 major corporations participated in “Power Matching,” an invitation-only matching program that is the highlight of ILS. 2,720 one-on-one meetings held over three days led to 1,002 deals that major corporations said they had a desire to continue negotiating with a view to forming partnerships. In many cases, these deals have already led to alliances and in some cases M&A.
