Startup the Party Conferenceについて
==============================

Startup the Party (STP) は今後20年、30年と発展していくような東京・サンフランシスコ間のスタートアップコミュニティーを構築することを目的とした非営利イベントです。

ここ数年で確実に成長を成し遂げている東京でのスタートアップシーン。最近ではその存在は海外からも注目を浴びる様になり、シリコンバレーで活躍する日本人や、敢て日本で起業するアメリカ人も少なからず出てきました。しかし未だにこの2つのコミュニティを本当の意味で「繋ぐ」イベントや機会は多くありません。

FacebookやDropboxの初期メンバーなど、イノベーションの拠点サンフランシスコを率いるベテラン起業家たちが、日本のスタートアップシーンにトモダチをたくさん作ってもらい、今後何十年と続く2つの都市の起業家コミュニティの原点になってほしい。そのような想いから、Startup the Partyは生まれました。
