Generating Innovation with Japan
Major Japanese firms, from manufacturing to finance to services in a whole variety of sectors, are increasingly looking to identify new innovation from Canadian start-ups in order to improve their business practices and to introduce new ideas and technology into the Japanese market and to their network of global clients.
For Canadian start-ups, the Japanese market (GDP: US$4.9 trillion; Pop.: 120 million) can be daunting but potentially hugely rewarding. One of the best ways to enter that market is through partnering with Japanese firms.
This series of events will provide unique opportunities for Canadian start-ups and major Japanese firms to connect and share information. Through reverse-pitch presentations, Japanese firms will explain about their technology needs and, during the networking session and follow-up meetings, Canadian start-ups can explain about their technology solutions.
Through this series of partnering sessions across Canada, JETRO aims to generate new innovation through partnerships between leading Japanese firms and innovative Canadian start-ups.
