A New Generation of Japanese Companies?
Thursday | July 19th, 2012 | 5:30 PM – 9:00 PM
****VENUE CHANGED TO: Oshman Family JCC (Jewish Community Center), Palo Alto
Over the last decade, a new crop of Japanese companies nurtured in the domestic Internet market have appeared. Many are now extending their activities to the epicenter of the Internet economy, Silicon Valley. Has their experience in the Japanese market provided them with insights to help guide their strategy here? Do these companies represent a new breed of Japanese enterprises compared to the more established technology players? In keeping with our theme of “Japan in Transformation,” join us in a discussion with executives of these new companies to help answer these questions.
