Shibuya Startup Support's New Home: Shibuya Bridge
Shibuya Startup Supportの新拠点「SHIBUYA BRIDGE」
Shibuya Startup Support (SSS) has moved! Shibuya Bridge, our new location, opened as a coworking and event space on October 2. Startups with connections to Shibuya City — such as S-Startups and startup visa holders — can use Shibuya Bridge free of charge, providing a community where entrepreneurs can relax, work, learn, and be inspired.
Shibuya Startup Supportはコミュニティの成長に伴い、拠点を「SHIBUYA BRIDGE」に移転、10月2日から利用を開始しました。S-Startups認定企業やスタートアップビザ保有者に無料オフィススペースを提供し、イベント向けの開放的な屋上スペースが特長です。
Shibuya Bridge is located near Shibuya Station South Exit, home to many well-known startup companies, including Google and Shibuya Stream. Shibuya Bridge consists of three floors: the first floor is an open space for socializing and activities, the second floor consists of meeting rooms and working spaces, and the rooftop terrace is used for events.
Access to the working space is limited to members, but SSS’s Weekly Brunch every Wednesday is open to all! This casual networking event is attended by startups, venture capitalists, and investors, creating a multinational environment where English is the predominant language.

SSS also hosts numerous large events. If you’re interested in connecting with overseas support organizations and startups, we regularly send event information through our email newsletter. Subscribe to the SSS email newsletter here.
