"Bit Valley" Project
To give the world wonderful services and products that move one’s hearts and astound the world
The Bit Valley project began in 2018 as a joint effort with Internet companies who are also based in Shibuya to turn the district into a global IT hub. At the second event, Bit Valley 2019, the theme was: "Toward New Domains of Craftsmanship: Where Technology and Creativity Intersect." The event was for engineers, as well as anyone from the IT industry involved in craftsmanship. During the two day-event, 1,700 participants signed up for sessions on diverse topics on technology, along with design, product management, music, ideas and more. In addition to students aspiring to become engineers, there were many other students of the fine and performing arts. This young talent was exposed to the latest technology, creative works and diverse working lifestyles. The event helped the students imagine what careers they want to pursue.
