・・・ ABOUT ・・・


COVID-19, the crisis of climate change, and changes in the economic system have made us question our lives and our values. In a world without common sense, and values no longer apply, it is necessary to redefine how we will live in the future as our own “STORY”.

Therefore, as the main theme of “Startup Conference CALLING Vol.3" is “STORY”, and we will discuss what we should aim for in each phase of startups.


CALLING Vol.3|2022.3.17
