Event Details

Bringing Silicon Valley to Japan

~ Opening Up Innovation in Japan

Japanese companies were global innovation leaders in numerous industries in the 1980s and 1990s. While some companies remain at the cutting edge and most Japanese companies’ technological capabilities remain strong, more recently the comparative position of Japanese companies in global innovation has been eroded in a number of industries, especially consumer electronics.

In September 2012, Japan Silicon Valley Innovation Forum (JSVIF) was formed under the sponsorship of NEDO, with organizational support from JETRO and the Consulate General of San Francisco. Numerous Japanese companies operating in Silicon Valley gathered to discuss how to practice open innovation and how to utilize Silicon Valley. The discussions were led by UC Berkeley professor Henry Chesbrough, who is credited with originating the term open innovation.

On November 1st, JSVIF will hold an open seminar titled “Bringing Silicon Valley to Japan” to discuss what large Japanese companies should do to be innovative and stay innovative as well as the unique advantages they have compared to US companies.  

Seating is limited so if you are interested, please register soon.

We look forward to seeing you there!
