Kisstartup in 2023 - A Year of Milestones

As always, the beginning of a new year is a time for our team to reflect on the results of the previous year and to prepare for the plans ahead. Here are some key metrics that we would like to share:

  • 32: Number of events, including both in-person and online
  • 44: Training sessions
  • 126: Consulting and coaching sessions
  • 3: New international markets: Japan, Canada
  • 42: Programs designed and operated by KisStartup and KisImpact
  • 9: Mentor-mentee pairs established in the SME 1on1 mentoring program
  • 125: Networking community of businesses, startups, and investors, both domestic and international

For us, numbers are not just a reflection of success and failure. They are also a source of lessons and new ideas. We use them to improve our weaknesses and to be bolder in our changes.

To our partners, colleagues, and customers, we hope that these numbers provide a glimpse into our work and accomplishments. They are not the whole story, but they are a starting point for building trust and collaboration in the years to come.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the network of partners and collaborators in the KisStartup ecosystem for their tremendous efforts and support. We could not quantify their contributions, since they are invaluable.

From the KisStartup team.

Intensive Coaching 1:1

When you are struggling with a variety of business issues and have not really found a right way to go and an effective implementation plan for some specific problems such as business model, call for investment capital, expand marketing, to carry out.
