About

Our Story

 Masa, Jennifer, Isamu, Saori, and Matt built Japan NYC Startups from the ground up. They came together under the same motivation- to stay connected through what they all had in common- Japan, and with that, Japan NYC Startups was born.

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.
