We expect over 150 participants, resulting in over 200 one-on-one sessions between innovators and representatives from Japanese multinational firms.

This is a “Reverse Pitch” business development event, where key decision makers at top Japanese companies will pitch to the innovators in Seattle, explaining what kind of innovation they are seeking, how they would like to do business and the distribution channels they can offer to help early stage companies accelerate on the road to revenue. Japanese delegations are looking for technology for them to use as customer, license, distribute and re-sell through their global sales channel.

If you'd like to considered, please let us know. IFC will do the match making and we will email you regarding your one-on-one.

Few munites of chat with delegation before you meeting will go along way.
