U.S. VC vs Japan VC – Key Differences

Webinar | October.04.2023 | 4:30pm - 5:45am (Tokyo Standard Time)

Virtual Webinar


Orrick represents over 3,700 technology companies in the U.S., Asia, including Japan, and Europe, witnessing varying trends between the regions, and enabling our lawyers to understand the needs of startup companies and assist them according to their jurisdiction. For example, when comparing the venture capital industry in Japan and the U.S., we observe that particular legal outlooks and business practices have different impacts on such companies depending on their location.

In this webinar, Joseph Perkins, partner in our Silicon Valley Office, and Hiroki Sugita, partner in the Tokyo Office, will discuss the key differences between Japan and the U.S. in connection with forming, financing, and operating high growth technology companies, including:

  • Key drivers for choosing location: US vs Japan
  • Incorporation process
  • Financing Terms
  • Employment, and Compensation and Benefit

In this session, we would love to hear your thoughts!  If there are any other topics or specific questions on US / Japan venture capital practices you want us to cover during this session, please submit by email to Tokyo Marketing by October 1. We look forward to your input! This will be a must-watch program for entrepreneurs, investors, corporate investors and other players in VC industries who consider starting a business, investing or fundraising in Japan and/or the U.S.
