A Unique Opportunity for Canadian Start-ups to Meet Potential Japanese Partners
Major Japanese firms, from manufacturing to finance to services in a whole variety of sectors, are increasingly looking to identify new innovation from Canadian start-ups in order to improve their business practices and to introduce new ideas and technology into the Japanese market and to their network of global clients.
For start-ups, the Japanese market (GDP: approx US$5 trillion; Pop.: 125 million) can be daunting but potentially hugely rewarding. One of the best ways to enter that market is through partnering with Japanese firms.
This GIJ Canada: Net Zero event will provide a unique opportunity for Canadian start-ups and major Japanese firms to connect and share information. Through profiles and reverse-pitch presentations, Japanese firms will explain about their technology needs and, on the B2B platform we are providing, start-ups can post their company information and request meetings to explain about their technology solutions.
Through this series of partnering sessions across Canada, and other programmes such as J-Bridge, JETRO aims to generate new innovation through partnerships between leading Japanese firms and innovative Canadian start-ups.
