In 2015, Masa Okunishi started Japan NYC Startups out of a desire for an ongoing and casual event for US-Japan Startup community. Masa met the rest of the team- Jennifer, Toby, Saori, and Matt in NYC and together, they built the meetup group organically. Today we are an international community of technologists, founders, engineers, and startup people in New York City. Our goal is to bridge Japan to local innovation ecosystems by bringing entrepreneurs and business leaders together to share their collective knowledge and experiences.
Become the global community focused on bridging Japan to local innovation ecosystems
Help entrepreneurs and business leaders share their collective experiences and knowledge, thus strengthening their ability to work across the US and Japanese markets
