We are pleased to announce that our co-founder & COO, Saki Kobayashi, has been selected and served as a mentor for the Singapore Dispatch Program of APT Women (Acceleration Program in Tokyo for Women) organized by Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Deloitte Tohmatsu Venture Support Co., Ltd. The closed-door pitch was organized by Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE), a national private sector-led organization to drive entrepreneurship and innovation in Singapore. LCO will continue to be committed to empowering female entrepreneurs and women-led startups.
【Overseas Dispatch Program of Acceleration Program in Tokyo for Women】
In the overseas dispatch program, about half of the program participants will be selected by the overseas dispatch selection committee. These selected entrepreneurs will be sent abroad for a period of about 10 days, where they will engage in a program aimed to create their first foothold for overseas business expansion. For the dispatched participants, the program will provide tailored on-site programs and necessary individual support.
As part of the on-site program, and through the cooperation of local supporters such as accelerators, academic institutions, local experts, venture capitals, public institutions, and other partner organizations, the participants will take part in pitch events aimed at raising their international profile and networking events to build connections with potential business partners, VCs, and fellow entrepreneurs. In addition, the program prepares the participants with necessary information and contacts regarding legal and administrative support. Each overseas dispatch program will partner with institutions distinct and relevant to the startup community in that region.
As individual support, the program will offer support prior and during the overseas dispatch based on the goals of each entrepreneur, whether it may be market research, search for business partners, organizing appointment itineraries or support in business negotiations. Although in principle the appointment schedules shall be made by the participant herself, the program members will provide advice and suggestions when necessary to identify promising business partners, arranging appointments, clarifying goals and strategies, and providing language support.

MOBILE & SOCIAL
The continuing importance of multichannel social, video & voice. Underestimate at your peril.
Mobile is by far today (and for the immediate future) the most important channel when it comes to reaching and getting closer to the connected consumer any time of day. Voice is beginning to take a larger role in the marketing mix and the importance of video just continues to rise. What social marketing tools, strategies and channels are key to gaining consumers attention? How will we search in 2020 & beyond (voice or visual anyone)? What AI-based solutions can help capture, learn, blend and create actionable insights on mobile and social channels to convert data into sales conversions? How can you engage customers throughout the entire journey, from research to payment and develop customer loyalty?
