What we're about

Japan NYC Startups is a global community focused on bridging Japanese and American innovation ecosystems. Our goal is to help entrepreneurs and business leaders share their collective experiences and knowledge, thus strengthening their ability to work across the US and Japanese markets.

We plan to meet regularly on a weekday in the evening. Each meeting will have a special guest speaker, Q&A, informal pitching and more!

This is the place where Japanese and NYC technologists and businesspeople meet! Our website, ( https://www.japanstartups.org/about ), has more information about us! Meanwhile, please find this introduction video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdhRNpmNlyQ ).
