  • In depth crash course on Japan and China's tech sectors. Who are the innovators? Who are the investors? What are the trends?
  • The opportunity to connect with high caliber people in Japan and China's startup and investment community. In one week, you will meet with a number of great people that usually takes foreign companies, entrepreneurs and investors several years, several trips and multiple layers of relationships and introductions to connect with.
  • Accelerate your cross border business strategies. Find local partners. Invest in new technologies.
  • Gain first hand insight into the role that cross cultural understanding and subtle but important nuances plays in doing business in the Far East
