Results-based Japan Market Entry for International Scaleups

Facilitating Successful Cross-Border Collaboration between International Scaleups & Japanese Corporations.

Free PoC Facilitation

Japanese companies rely on us to search the globe for technologies that fit their innovation needs.

If one of our corporate partners express an interest in collaborating with you, we provide full interpretation & facilitation to help you design a win-win PoC (proof of concept) or Pilot plan together, with clear business objectives.

We then support you with hands-on project management through every step of the PoC, from planning to implementation, and help remove any roadblocks along the way.

Best of all, our PoC support is completely FREE for startups, and can often be conducted entirely remotely.

Post-PoC Support

After successful completion of your PoC, we can assist you to negotiate next-step commercial discussions, and help secure the fairest conditions for both sides.

Local Representation

During your PoC, we teach you key points about entering the Japanese market successfully.

Post-PoC, we can also offer local representation & business development service for your first steps in Japan.

Once you gain enough local traction to justify it, we can assist you with establishment of a Japanese entity, hiring of key staff, etc.
