The Japan Innovation Ecosystem is characterized by a continued series of government support initiatives for startups, entrepreneurs and ecosystem enablers, a steadily growing participation by Japan’s corporate sector, and a more recent influx of foreign tech companies. Starting at the very top, the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister, Japan has decided it has a mission that includes the creation and nurturing of more unicorn companies.
In response, governments, corporations and educational institutions have unleashed various campaigns to plant their respective flags in the ground in a claim to be the innovation capital of Japan.
In Osaka, via the Startupbootcamp Scale Osaka program, seven Japanese corporations are doing something special and really putting Osaka, Kansai and Japan on the world stage. In one program cycle, they have attracted over 450 applications from some of the world’s most exciting companies, and now we hear how these forward thinking Japanese companies are collaborating with the best of the best to make a positive impact on the country.
