Big in Japan: Casey Wahl, CEO of Wahl & Case, on Japan’s New Generation of Entrepreneurs

July 29, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $25

Tokyo based headhunter Casey Wahl works with many Japanese startups helping them find the right people to support their growing businesses. And he’s just completed a book where he interviews a cross-section of successful startup founders in Japan — already a bestseller in Japan it’s soon to be published in English under the title Insights to the Japanese Entrepreneurial Mind.

Join Casey as he shares what makes Japanese startup founders tick, and what American firms entering the Japanese market can learn from them about what it takes to be successful there. He’ll also discuss how Japan’s startups are setting their sights on Silicon Valley, and why the Silicon Valley way of doing business holds such appeal for Japanese today.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about Japan’s startup scene and the people who are driving it. Japan’s economy is more than just its large firms, and indeed it’s smaller ones that may hold the key to revitalizing Japan’s economy.
