Why Japanese Innovation cannot catch the global market? Why cool innovations are scarcely made in Japan? Generally, in Japan, it is still difficult to raise fund in its seed stage. Further more, it is said that the VCs will invest to the entrepreneurs not to spread their innovations to the global market, but to the domestic market, despite it is obvious that the domestic market is much more dimunutive. This is one of the main reason why Japanese innovations have not been able to reach the global market. I want to change this odd situation that the VCs as a board members try to stop their global growing. Now we need more sophisticated fundraising model which enpower and facilitate the Japanese entrepreneurs to develop a powerful innovation to the global market from their seed stage. So this meetup is to help the entrepreneur to raise fund from the Visionary-Investors. And it will provide oppotunities for every innovations to reach a global market.
