Blog Resource
Summary:

Earlier this month, I hosted a gathering of 40 experts from Japan at our new GEW Global conference center in Washington, DC, where we discussed the notion that Japan needs to launch a rebirth by being more open, building a better startup ecosystem, bringing in more foreigners and sending more Japanese overseas. We also looked at whether Japan needs more examples of Japanese startup success that underscore the importance of globalization—startups that convince others that taking risks is alright, and political leadership that encourages entrepreneurial behavior even if only to keep Japan’s big businesses competitive and dynamic. We concluded that Japan needs to celebrate the great Japanese pioneers and entrepreneurs who built some of the most innovative companies in the world and pose the entrepreneurial imperative to a new generation.

Blog Resource
Summary:

Two prominent Japanese professors recently authored the Fukao-Kwon report, which revealed that from 1996-2006, when total employment in Japan decreased by 3.5 million, young, newly established firms and foreign companies were the only ones to create net job growth. This report also suggests that new companies have higher success rates than older, established companies in Japan and that entrepreneurs clearly need to be the central catalysts in Japan’s next chapter. Have the great innovators of the post-war years – Toyota, Nippon Steel, Sony, etc – become so huge and successful that they have lost their propensity to create disruptive new technologies?

Blog Resource
Summary:

The White House is getting attention recently for its efforts at X Prize style competitions—which makes sense since its ‘assistant director for grand challenges’ is a former X-Prizer. One of the challenges at the heart of that approach is its i6 Challenge—a $6 million competition that “seeks to develop Proof of Concept Centers and create a network of experts to support innovators and researchers; spur sustainable startups, small businesses, and new ventures; expand access to capital to fuel growth; connect mentors and education to entrepreneurs; and spark job creation.”
