Bilinguals & Gaijins In Startups

What is Bilinguals & Gaijins In Startups?

Bilinguals & Gaijins In Startups is an event to help connect internationally minded talent in Japan with some of the most promising startups in Tokyo. There are many incredibly talented bilinguals and foreigners that either work in Japan or would like to work in this wonderful country. Startups present an exciting opportunity for them to work in a dynamic, fast-moving environment not offered by most traditional Japanese companies.

Founders in Japan are increasingly thinking more globally. But the reality is that in order to set themselves up for international success, they need a diverse team early on. Both bilinguals and foreigners bring unique strengths that can help startups build the foundation to expand abroad. Together, we can build truly global companies right here in the heart of Tokyo.
