Announcing Our New Kyoto Office

Syno International is proud to announce the opening of our second office in Japan with a new branch in the ancient capital of Kyoto. In connection to the opening of our new office, Syno was selected by the City of Kyoto and the Kyoto Institute of Advanced Technology in the “Startup Approaches to Problem Solving in the Era of Covid-19” pitch contest. In this pitch contest, we proposed a system called “Survey for Good—Welcome Back!” in which participants who answer questionnaires  in the new Kyoto Tourism Association Covid-19 awareness program can donate their rewards towards a variety of charities related to Covid-19.

We are excited to be able to expand our reach to clients in Kyoto and western Japan with this new office.

With Kyoto as my hometown, it has always been a dream of mine to open this branch office. In doing so however, I was very pleasantly surprised to learn how friendly and supportive local businesses and universities are to startups like Syno. In particular, the assistance we have received from JETRO Kyoto has been invaluable, and I am thankful for all their help. I look forward to talking with Kansai clients and partners to see how we can meet their needs better.

The tourism industry is the most important industry in Kyoto and there are lots of issues in the industry both before and after COVID-19. Also, more and more companies from Kyoto are trying to reach the global market, but are facing marketing issues. Syno Japan will provide innovative solutions for both issues with industries and companies and we will continue to support innovative overseas startups coming to the Kyoto market.
