Event Details


Event Overview




Japan is number two in start-up formation worldwide, behind only the US. Yet there is much less venture capital and angel investing in Japan than in America. So where does the capital for these Japanese start-ups come from? What does this mean for US companies that want to partner with Japanese start-ups and US investors that want to invest in them? How does Japan’s system for funding start-ups affect their expansion plans, and what can Japanese start-ups do from the outset to position themselves for global expansion?  Join us to explore these topics with a panel of experts.
