GEN Japan, Japan Innovation Network ( EWC Japan's National host), and its official EWC Partner CIC Tokyo are proud to organize the EWC Japan 2021 National Finals in which Japan's top 10 startups will compete, and the Board of GEN Japan will be presented to the public for the first time!
The Board will be formed by Buke Cuhadar (Vice President of GEN Global), Masaru Nagura (Director of Community Development for CIC Tokyo), Hiro Nishiguchi (Managing Director at GEN Japan, and CEO as well as Co-Founder of Japan Innovation Network), Masa Tadokoro (CEO and founder of unicornfarm), Kentaro Sakakibara (Founder and CEO of Samurai Incubate), and Fariza Abidova (Founder and CEO of Trusted Inc.). Due to travel and time restrictions, Buke Cuhadar and Fariza Abidova, will not be able to participate in the event but will present themselves through a video.
Not only do we have the privilege of having 4 company founders within this board, Ms. Abidova, Mr. Nishiguchi, Mr. Sakakibara, and Mr. Tadokoro, who have the first-hand experience of starting a business from scratch, we also have the amazing chance to benefit from the entrepreneurial knowledge and leadership that Ms. Cuhadar brings to the table as well as Mr. Nagura’s expertise in technology, policymaking and community development within a startup ecosystem.
As we gather a diverse group of board members and entrepreneurs, we hope to promote fruitful discussions and concrete actions that will help the Japanese innovation ecosystem to flourish and push forward GEN’s aim to create one global entrepreneurial ecosystem, helping people unleash their ideas and turn them into promising new ventures.
