author on this issue to investors and the media to ask, we are not optimistic about the investment in japan. There are many reasons, the author summarizes several key points are as follows:
First of all,
is Japan’s rigid corporate system.
most people who do not look forward to investing in Japan believe that there are no more than 2 years of life and more than 150 years of enterprise employment system in the island, there is no entrepreneurial opportunities, especially young people.
and Thomson Reuters (the world’s most authoritative professional information service provider) the selection of the "2015 global innovation enterprises hundred" list, Japan topped the list, with 40 entry beat the United States 35. Japanese companies on the list are: aixinjingji (Aisin Seiki), Bridgestone (Bridgestone), Canon (Canon), CASIO (Casio Computer) (Daikin Industries), Daikin, Fuji film (FUJIFILM), Fujitsu (Fujitsu), Matsushita (Panasonic), YAMAHA engine (Yamaha Motor), but no one home is a young start-up company.
is a local investment institutions, such as imperfect venture facilities.
investors very frank told Xiao Bian said, "Japan almost disappeared following A round of investment institutions, even Softbank is also late too much, and it is also a large group of investment holding mode."
, a month after the investigation, in-depth I found that this impression is misleading! Japan’s business environment has already changed, now may be the best time of venture investment in japan.
1, policy thaw
two years ago, the Japanese government began to focus on entrepreneurship, the promulgation of the "1 yen will be able to start a company" and "unemployed entrepreneurs preferential" and "special industries (the elderly and patient care, child care, Home Furnishing decoration, staffing and other social fields may be needed) grant" policy to encourage entrepreneurship. Especially college students born entrepreneurs (before the limited risk investment institutions, investment not students) the Japanese government support, the University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, Osaka University, Northeastern University, the four university has its own funds can vote for University born entrepreneurs.
and this year, Japan also spontaneously venture capital circles the emergence of several special investment business students VC, so in this environment, young people want to start it, is not difficult, after all, the environment is.
