What is IVS?
Infinity Ventures Summit (IVS) is a two-day, exclusive, invitation-only forum for more than 500 enthusiastic entrepreneurs and senior executives of Japan’s IT industry. Through a series of fireside chats and interactive discussions, IVS will utilize peer-level networking and discussion opportunities to catalyze an exchange of new ideas and business strategies and to evaluate what's next for the industry, with an emphasis on technologies and trends. Importantly, it is our intention to provide a closed-door, private forum where senior executives can interact and network freely. Attendance at IVS is limited and by invitation only. If you would like to be considered to attend IVS, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

IVS Program Details
Speakers and panelists are typically CEOs of major companies, fast-growing companies and other well-known industry leaders. They are selected by invitation, based on the theme of this year's conference.
From 2005 we started to include speakers and participants from cutting-edge foreign ventures. We welcomed Robin Li, CEO of China's leading search engine Baidu, Triq Krim, former CEO of Netvibes, as well as speakers from high-profile ventures such as Admob, Brightcove, Facebook, Groupon, Playfish, RenRen, Ustream, and Zynga. IVS is the most high-profile event in the industry.
Companies presenting receive unique access to the leading executives in the Internet industry in mainly Japan. Because we strictly limit the number of presentations and handpick the companies, every company presenter receives significant exposure.
*IVS will provide simultaneous translation service between English and Japanese for the sessions.
