Scaling up your business in Japan – how and why?

About event:

Austrade and the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) invite you to attend the second webinar of the series “Scaling up your business in Japan – how and why?”, featuring the fast growing Australian firm, HIVERY.

HIVERY is a spinout in 2015 by two Australian-born entrepreneurs and three Ph.D data scientists from Data61/CSIRO. The Sydney-based AI-driven startup is a pioneer of hyper-local retailing. HIVERY is solving business problems in the retail and FMCG sectors in Australia, the US and Japan using artificial intelligence (AI), helping customers generate ROI never seen before.

In Japan, HIVERY is achieving what other Australian firms aspire to. They have set up offices in Tokyo to bring new AI-powered analytical innovation in the vending machine and category management space. At slightly over 5 million nationwide, Japan has the highest density of vending machines worldwide with an annual sales total more than $60 billion, which makes it a hugely valuable market.

The success of Australia in international markets is one of the drivers behind the HIVERY team, with a desire to bring other Australian companies in the tech space along with them says Franki Chamaki, co-founder. ‘The biggest thing for us is that we are proudly an Australian AI company and we want to be an example of the way Australian intellectual investment can achieve overseas,’ he said.
