Yokohama City declared itself an "Innovation City Yokohama" in January 2027, and has been promoting the formation of opportunities for the exchange of innovative human resources, support for the growth of start-ups, and open innovation with the participation of companies, universities, and research institutions. In July 2020, Yokohama was selected by the Japanese government as a "Global Center of Excellence for Startup Ecosystem", and we will take this opportunity to further promote the creation of world-class companies and an ecosystem that attracts people, companies and investment from Japan and overseas.
The need for digital transformation (DX), which is the use of data and digital technology to create new value and change people's lives and businesses for the better, is increasing regardless of the size of the company or the industry in which it operates in order to expand its business globally.
In order for this to be successful, top-down change that understands the importance of DX, rather than bottom-up change, is essential, and there is an urgent need to develop the human resources to promote DX.
The seminar and workshop will be held mainly for executives of companies to learn the latest examples of DX and to understand the need for IT human resources.
This year's seminar will be coordinated by the Yokohama City Office for the Americas in collaboration with Galvanize and JETRO Yokohama.

What is a "Global Hub City", a hub city for start-up ecosystems?
In the areas selected by experts, the Cabinet Office, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, we aim to form and develop a world-class Japanese start-up ecosystem that makes the most of Japan's strengths in human resources, research and development, corporate activities, and funding. In order to achieve this goal, the program recognizes plans for the formation of start-up ecosystems by local governments, universities, and private organizations in cities with a certain level of concentration and potential, and provides support through government and private sector supporters to these cities.
Four cities in Japan have been selected as Global Hub Cities.
Innovation City Yokohama (YOXO )
Creating innovation through "crossover" in Yokohama
The City of Yokohama has declared itself an "Innovation City Yokohama" in January 31, 2009, where researchers, engineers, entrepreneurs, students and other human resources will expand their networks across organizations to create new innovations from Yokohama. So far, various private companies and universities, including the newly established R&D hub in the Minato Mirai 21 district, have created opportunities for the exchange of innovative human resources.
In order to further raise awareness of this initiative and to make it a major movement in the future, we have established a logo and statement to symbolise the "Innovation City of Yokohama". With this logo as a symbol, we will create an environment where companies, organisations and individuals can connect and create new business.
