The Asia Berlin Summit 2022 is an annual week-long event on start-ups and ecosystems in Berlin. As its official satellite event, the Drivery Go to Japan “Yokohama” Program was held on 15 September for European mobility start-ups on the theme of innovation co-creation with Yokohama.

Last year, the City of Yokohama started a partnership with The Drivery,  an innovation hub in Berlin specializing in the mobility sector, with the accelerator CROSSBIE   (based in Berlin and Yokohama) as a partner for innovation co-creation with Yokohama. As part of this initiative, around 40 people gathered in an informal atmosphere using the opportunity of a breakfast meeting at The Drivery.

The Drivery’s CEO explained the purpose of the event, followed by an introduction from the Chief Representative of the City of Yokohama Europe Representative Office on Yokohama’s support for start-ups, innovation promotion through industry-academia-government collaboration, and the city’s experience in demonstration projects and concentration of global mobility-related companies, etc. The COO of CROSSBIE JAPAN introduced the “The Drivery Go to Japan “Yokohama” Program”, which includes one-on-one online matching sessions and arranging business meetings during visits to Yokohama.
