BIJ Partner / Corporate

Empowering face-to-face connections:

My goal with Business In Japan has always been to bring people together and foster meaningful connections that support careers and enterprises working with or in Japan. For over 16 years, this LinkedIn community has grown to almost 88,000 professionals and has been a valuable resource for networking, advice, and opportunities.

For those who would like to join, the new BIJ membership program and platform will help take our community to the next level by enabling even deeper engagement and partnership. Bringing BIJ Supporters and GoodPeople together in more exclusive online and in-person events that facilitate business discussions and relationship-building. This translates to more opportunities for you to network, build relationships, and tap into valuable insights in person.

Looking ahead
At launch, this program is just the beginning. I have an existing intention to help, and a “blue sky” goal to create an initiative that gives back to Japan, especially supporting Japanese small and medium-sized businesses with a need to survive. With the combined power of GoodPeople, we can make a real difference.

Additionally, were Business in Japan to evolve to this level of influence, core members & I could perhaps establish ourselves as an effective lobby group representing the interests of small and medium-sized enterprises, both foreign and domestic, in their dealings with the Japanese government. This would help promote policies supportive of entrepreneurship and strengthen Japan’s business environment. Helping everyone doing… Business in Japan.
