10th Anniversary Campaign

Future Entrepreneurs Attend Slush Asia Event

Last Friday morning, five ISAK students headed to Tokyo to participate in Slush Asia, an event that brings together investors, media and young entrepreneurs from Asia and around the world! Now in it’s second year, Slush Asia is one of the largest events of its kind in Japan, with over 4,000 attendees and 360 startups represented. The event included demo booths, presentations from over 50 speakers, and the chance for young entrepreneurs to meet with investors and the media.

First Lady of Japan, Ms. Akie Abe, gave the opened the conference by saying, “The world has already changed, and it will continue to do so. I feel that the people here at Slush are the change makers.” Ms. Abe has also visited ISAK and is a supporter of educational reform in Japan.

Slush was an exciting opportunity for the ISAK students who attended because they are all interested in one day starting their own ventures.

“This experience was truly instructive for us to consider and actually start planning our future so next time, we, the future entrepreneurs, will be the ones who present our ideas on stage,” said G-11 student, Yasu.

We have no doubt that ISAK students will some day be leading the way at events like Slush Asia!

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
