How Japanese Startups are Different Than Those in Silicon Valley, w/ Tim Romero

Over the past decade, the Japanese government has introduced dozens of programs to foster innovation. Clearly they are having some effect because we are now seeing both an explosion in the number of startups being founded and the number of smaller companies entering the Japanese market.

In this presentation, Japan-based entrepreneur and podcaster Tim Romero will explain why the Japanese model of innovation, however, is developing into something very different from what the government expected and very different from what we’ve seen in Silicon Valley. Longer sales cycles, lower availability or growth capital and the relative rarity of strategic M&A have forced many Japanese firms to be more focused and operationally sound, and there are both good and bad aspects to this situation.

    Hi there, looks like there's a minor typo in the meetup address. The correct one should be:
    650 Page Mill Rd, Palo Alto, CA

    Also, great to see Tim speaking in the Bay Area! Looking forward to it.
