Japan’s large companies realize that they need to innovate, and are attracted by the energy and dynamism of Silicon Valley startups. Deloitte’s Masayuki Kimura is focused on helping to connect Japanese large companies with startups in Silicon Valley. In this talk, he will give us insight into the strategic possibilities of such connections, and share stories about what works and what doesn’t work in such collaborations. He will also give advice for startups on what to look for in evaluating potential partnerships with large Japanese companies, and the do’s and don’ts for successful collaborations

This will be a fascinating talk for everyone interested in how Japan and Silicon Valley can work together for innovation.
