The Bioindustry and BioTech in Japan
Expansion to Japan is an important step for the growth of any enterprise in the Bioindustry. For a BioVenture, Japan should often be the first targeted market. For more mature organizations, Japan is almost always an important targeted market. This means we are used to working with companies of various sizes and levels of maturity. We work with funded near-start-ups as well as Fortune 500 companies and all types in between.
The Bioindustry is growing globally and this is true also in Japan. The Biotech scene in Japan is vibrant and there are plenty of reasons why expansion to Japan should be on your wishlist. By 2030, Japan’s Government has pledged to become the World’s leading Bioeconomy.

Certification, compliance and legalities
Scarce harmonization is a threshold for all products that are launched in Japan. This applies in the same way to both domestic and international products. Unfortunately, the Japanese regulatory systems are not overly flexible and not always transparent. There is serious work undertaken towards harmonization and transparency.

The Japanese business narrative
Japan is the World’s third-largest economy and justifiably a highly attractive market! Cutting to the chase: Japanese business culture is also quite unique. There are a number of very real obstacles keeping your business from realizing its full potential in Japan. Issues include cultural differences, language, legalities, physical distance, regulatory issues and time zones. Issues vary by industry but always need to be assessed properly. We help you navigate, you make the decisions!
