Japan remains an untapped market for international startups interested in research collaborations, business expansion and raising funds
Japan is a technology powerhouse with a mature market close to 130 million, a large economy (Japan is the world's 3rd largest) with a GDP of nearly 5 trillion yen . Additionally , in the recent past Japanese conglomerates are more open minded than ever before and are focusing on collaborating with domestic and international startups towards open innovation.
Japan is also known for its strong pool of private investors and venture capitalists with considerable risk appetite to invest in early stage deep tech startups, making Japan a very attractive market for international startups. The investor mindset combined with support from government agencies provides international startups a great opportunity to penetrate the market, create traction as well as go public or IPO.
Despite all the above positive attributes about Japan market, a few challenges that persist for international startups include its language barrier, differences in business culture and the need to have the right connections to gain traction and market confidence.
To overcome these barriers and facilitate startups to acclimatise to conditions in Japan, LVNS in partnership with ESG will conduct a program to support Singaporean startups towards developing an understanding and to gain insights into areas of market strategy, business development, investment opportunities, prototyping needs, research collaborations and intellectual property within the Japan ecosystem.
