————————————————————————————————————————–Japan remains an untapped market for international startups interested in research collaborations, open innovation, business expansion and  raising funds

Japan is an attractive destination for startups from all over the world to expand into, due to its mature market and population. Now more than before, Japanese companies are focusing on collaborations with domestic and international startups towards open innovation. Japan is a single cultural country hence it is also easier for international startups to expand, gain traction and scale their business after establishing a single successful point of entry.

That said, international startups do find it difficult to enter Japan, due to many reasons which may include issues such as language barriers, differences in business culture and having the right networks or connections.
