Give form to your ideas with like-minded people

SUGEE Osaka is aiming to create SUGEE moments where ambitious ideas are realized. There are a lot of people in Osaka or Kansai area in Japan who have unique ideas and are thinking about how to realize them, however, because of the lack of English information or opportunities, most of such people cannot get enough support for actualizing it.
