Startup Japan

Japan’s startup ecosystem is critical to the country’s future. It injects much-needed flexibility and dynamism into Japan’s rigid postwar social structures and an economy dominated by large firms. Japan’s startup ecosystem will influence the technological and strategic trajectories that large firms and much of the economy pursue. This series features data, company cases, policy analyses, and individual stories to illustrate this transformative force within Japan that took decades to mature but is now ready to take off.
