Japanese government agency to open Israeli startup accelerator E-mail

The Japanese External Trade Organization (JETRO), a Japanese governmental agency, announced last month that it will open a business centre and accelerator programme for Israeli startups.

The centre will support Israeli startups and mediate business co-operation between Japanese and Israeli companies. It will focus on support for Israeli companies in the founding stages and the expansion of their businesses to Japan.

JETRO promotes bilateral trade and investments between Japan and the rest of the world. As part of its activity, it operates the Invest Japan programme, which is aimed at helping foreign companies wishing to develop their business in Japan.

The programme offers information for foreign investors about all aspects of doing business in Japan, and provides professional consultation and temporary office space for free in large business centres throughout Japan. Under the name Global Acceleration Hub (GAH), similar Japanese centres operate at 12 sites around the world.

The GAH programme will be operated by Jakore, owned by former Rakuten executive Shintaro Hirato and former Samurai Incubate Israel CEO Yony Golan. The company represents Japanese investors and companies, while also supporting Israeli startups in the Japanese market.
