Japan Innovation Collective Gathering with JETRO
The core focus of this co-created Thursday Gathering is to strengthen bilateral relationships between Rhode Island and Japan and to increase awareness of investment opportunities in the State. Venture Cafe Providence will be showcasing the very best Rhode Island has to offer in the Health & Life Sciences, the Blue Economy and the general startup ecosystem.
JETRO, or the Japan External Trade Organization, is a government-related organization that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world. Originally established in 1958 to promote Japanese exports abroad, JETRO’s core focus in the 21st century has shifted toward promoting foreign direct investment into Japan and helping small to medium size Japanese firms maximize their global export potential.
