Startup Weekend Tokyo (May 11-13)

Last weekend Ocean Tokyo teamed up with Startup Weekend Tokyo as coaches to help inspire the 100+ entrepreneurs joining the 54 hour event. We got to listen to some great ideas! Many of which used the mobile as main platform, this being Japan and all. Hopefully we could inspire them too, to never forget the users of their services and keep designing for their needs and aspirations. 

User Experience Crash Course #swtokyo

Last Thursday we held a 3-hour-skill-up-session for the entrepreneurs of Startup Weekend Tokyo, kind of a crash course in user experience. We also had them participate in an idea generation exercise to broaden their mindsets before the weekend.

Our first arena rock concert in Japan! That would be Aerosmith playing at Tokyo Dome. Yay! Steven Tyler rocked the place, yepp. The most peculiar thing we noticed though was that when the show was over, one section at a time left the arena, the ones not called waiting for their turn. Only in Japan, only in Japan.
