Semi-Finalist at MIRAI 2021

Shahar Figelman

CEO of Selfit Medical

“As a small startup, making the right decisions and walk away from the bad ones is crucial. It is even more challenging when considering the Japanese market. We have found Network in Motion to be a valuable partner to help us navigate this market, with a clear overview of Japan’s unique business culture.

Ira and Jun simply pushed us to apply to one of the top programs for international companies in Japan (MIRAI 2021), helped us with local barriers and introduced us to potential clients and partners. We can see the fruits of their hard work and looking forward to scale in Japan.”
