EU / Japan financing support for Startups and SMEs expanding to Japan

The report by Joana Vaz of the EU-Japan Centre covers the publicly available financing instruments for European startups and SMEs that aim to expand to Japan – not only EU financing instruments but also those from Japan. bistream’s Asian Talent Exchange program (“Startup Dojo”) is also mentioned, as it is an in-kind support to European startups. European startups can utilize Japanese corporate talents for free – who speak the language, know the culture, and have the expertise in the vertical. This also enables Japan’s corporations to internationalise their talents. See more in the link below.
