With the competitive advantages of Corporate Venture Capital (CVC), a prominent method enabling the collaboration between corporations and startups, Japanese companies have started to expand abroad despite the challenges faced when operating a Japanese CVC.

This webinar will welcome Fumiko Uraki, who leads the Global Corporate Venture activities of Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings, and Nicolas Sauvage, President at TDK Ventures, and will be moderated by Joseph Perkins, partner in our Silicon Valley office and Hiroki Sugita, partner in our Tokyo Office.  This session will discuss the management of Japanese CVCs and its challenges, as well as the future outlook, illustrated with our panelists own experiences.

The webinar will follow an open discussion format among our presenters with opportunities for participants to ask questions. We encourage you to submit questions ahead of time so our presenters can conduct any necessary research prior to the event.
