  • If an organizer creates subgroups, He or she will appoint a facilitator for each subgroup.

After having a group conversation for 60 minutes, we will end the group activity. It will be free conversation time. You are free to leave or you can stay and talk about any topic you like with anyone in Japanese or English.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
