15+ years in Tokyo, former software engineer (various startup experiences), tech translator, now co-managing a ryokan.
My interests now lean more toward the so-called "social entrepreneurship" side, but, as Peter Drucker pointed out, the management issues are hardly any different in the non-profit sector. I hope to learn more about lean startup methodology and see which lessons I can apply to my own efforts.
Not as such. I'm in the process of starting an NPO with a research, educational and charitable agenda, however. The business I help manage now can hardly be called a startup, since it seems to have started not long after WW II. I did, however, revive it by putting it on the Web and promoting it.
