Making use of an online environment in COVID-19 circumstances, the start-up pitch event was held to promote global investment.
Tokyo, Japan – January 13, 2021 – Monthly Pitch Asia, our biggest global monthly start-up event in Japan targeted to Southeast Asia was held online.
Since time is crucial and limited, we started “Monthly Pitch” where early-stage entrepreneurs can quickly meet investors active in Asia, allowing them to spend minimal time on fundraising and concentrate on their business as much as possible.
January 2021 marking the 44th time, we, CyberAgent Capital have been holding this monthly event since 2016, with 330 companies taking the stage – making it the largest fundraising event in Japan.
The event held on January 13th, 2021, which under normal circumstances is held offline, featured pitches from six South East Asian start-ups and meetings between start-ups and investors from all over the world. The previous “Monthly Pitch” was an overseas edition held in Jakarta in 2019.

Comments from start-ups
“CyberAgent Capital put together an impressive and relevant group of investors and industry leaders who are leaders in their respective fields in Japan, and also have a real interest in deepening their investments and business expansions to Southeast Asia. The CAC team was an early pioneer into SEA, and thus have strong knowledge and access to founders via their portfolio companies as well as founders network. We are excited to strengthen our joint efforts to bring more Japanese partners down as Japan is a key member of RCEP that contributes significant impact to Southeast Asia and RCEP regions. -Keenan Kwok, CEO, GetLinks-
