  The first generation of B-Factories, BaBar and Belle, operated over the previous decade and produced many world-leading measurements related to flavour physics. Their discoveries contributed to the awarding of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physics. The Belle II experiment, being constructed at the KEK laboratory in Japan, is a substantial upgrade of both the Belle detector and the KEKB accelerator. It aims to collect 50 times more data than existing B-Factory samples. This will provide unprecedented sensitivity to new physics signatures in the flavour sector. This talk will present the upgrade efforts of the Belle II experiment and the physics opportunities it will provide. There will be a particular focus on the physics reach potentially available from the first data, to be collected in early 2018.
