EBN Member Val d'Oise Technopole (VOT), has opened an international hub for its companies at Knowledge Capital, one of the main business centres in Osaka (Japan). The international partnership between the two organisations started at last year’s EBN Congress.

Last month, the two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), creating internationalisation opportunities for their companies. VOT, along with other Knowledge Capital's international partners, joined Knowledge Capital's fifth anniversary event last month. VOT has established an office at Knowledge Capital’s premises, allowing VOT's companies coming to Japan a smooth adaptation process and easier access to the Japanese market. Japanese companies interested in French market will also be able to take advantage of VOT’s business support expertise.
This was not the only internationalisation agreement VOT established at last year’s Congress - a couple of months before, three VOT's companies visited Naples Accelerator (Florida, US) for a first-hand insight into the US market. Following the successful collaboration between the two organisations, VOT signed a partnership with Collier County during the Congress, by opening an international hub at Naples Accelerator.
