Getting funding for your Medical startup is not easy. Competition is high and it is not surprising that about 90% of startups fail.*1 

One way of getting that sought-after investment in your startup is by finding new markets and investors and Japan is a rich country with a wide range of investment platforms.

So here are 3 reasons why you should find a Japanese investor:

1. Japanese are very technological oriented, thus can scale up your business.

Some say “visiting Japan is like visiting the future” as Japanese love technology and life changing inventions. Working with the Japanese can help you move your technology, and your startup, to the next level.

Japanese business practice is not so familiar with startups as innovation comes from within the corporate and that is the reason why in order to keep their technological superiority they are starting to invest in startups.

2. Japanese corporations have global presents, thus can open more opportunities

When you get funding for your startup from a Japanese investor, you are not only entering the Japanese market but also having a smooth path to global markets, as some of these giants, like Terumo, Canon, Olympus, Teijin, Nihon Kohden, among others are active in the key markets such as USA, Europe and Southeast Asia.

3. Language barrier & the rule of perfection in using English for communication.

Japan is one of the oldest countries in the world and some of their companies have survived more than 2 centuries. So what is the secret for their survival?
Well, of course the answer is not simple but being able to think in a long-term manner is a part of it. The Japanese take their time and make careful decisions, weighing all options and deciding on a route that will get them to where they want to be and what they want to achieve in the long run. They may take their time, but when they make their decision you can be sure it will be the one that will assure their growth (and yours).
