Network in Motion’s President, Ira Prigat was invited to be a panelist at an event called: “Japan-US Medical Device Innovation Forum Kobe ” held in Kobe on November 8, 2019 .

Mr. Ishikawa of JRI served as a facilitator, and for a short time, heated discussions continued, and the venue was thriving enough to stand out.

The title of the event is “Japan and the United States …”, but the story of Israel, which has the top investment in the world, seems very interesting to Japanese people, whom may have heard about Israel, but yet are not familiar with how to actually appouch, evaluate and conduct business with Israelis.

Incidentally, according to CB INSIGHTS statistics, in the five years from 2012 to 2017, 71% of the investment received by Israel was from overseas. (Silicon Valley is 24%), so one can see how foreign investors are paying attention to Israel. Although the investment from Japan is still small, I hope that the investment from Japan will increase in the future.

Here is the poster.

We very much appreciate to the organizing team, Kobe City and US Japan Medtech Frontiers (USJMF).
