Last week, DeepEn Business Specialist Patrick Westermann spent a full week in Japan, visiting the life science clusters around Kyoto, Osaka, and Kobe. Though DeepEn is still in the pre-seed phase, housed in the facilities of Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology, we are already thinking globally. The leading position of Japan in the fields of Neuroscience, Photonics, and Medical Innovation makes it one of our first focus markets outside of Europe. In international comparison, Japan stands out due to its distinctive research culture and innovation-friendly environment. The Japanese life science industry offers foreign entrepreneurs and researchers numerous opportunities and represents a very attractive growth market.
During his week in Japan, Patrick visited neuroscientists at Kyoto University, discussed internationalization at an event of DJW – Japanese-German Business Association and exchanged ideas with life-science founders at Innovation Dojo Japan. We want to thank International Startup Campus for making this extremely insightful and valuable business trip possible. A big “Thank You” goes to Valerie Daldrup for great coordination and organization of the trip!
