We had a fantastic turnout at our Kansai Scene Business Matters presentation event on April 11, as we invited four guest speakers to tell us all about the ins-and-outs of setting up a business in Japan.
Naoki Maekawa from Shinmei Law started things off with the low-down on incorporating a business. Frances Lin from Noah House followed with information about securing office space and then we were treated to an excellent presentation by Dr. Philip Sugai from the Doshisha Business School GMBA on the importance of adding value to your product or service.
Finally Thomas Bertrand, CEO of Kyoto-based bento retailer Bento&co provided a truly inspirational account of how he went about setting up his own business and the challenges he faced to get where he is today. A PDF of the slides used in the presentations is available to download from our Kansai Scene Business Matters Facebook page.
We are planning similar events over the coming months, so keep your eyes peeled for more details as and when they are made available.
