BIJ Membership Program

Leverage exclusive opportunities and benefits through a supportive community focused on professional goals and connections in Japan.

Empowering face-to-face connections: Your membership directly supports my regular visits to Japan, enabling me to host events, attend gatherings, and foster deeper connections within the community. This translates to more opportunities for you to network, build relationships, and tap into valuable insights in person.

Building a collaborative ecosystem: By joining forces, we can uncover synergies and create a powerful network, where everyone benefits. Your membership fuels our collaborative efforts, allowing us to share resources, solve challenges, and unlock exciting opportunities for each other’s success. This means you gain access to a supportive community, expert guidance, and a platform to achieve your goals.

Looking ahead
At launch, this program is just the beginning. I have 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 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.
