Technologists with formal engineering and scientific backgrounds
Many firms who advertise themselves as technology analysts employ staff with little or no formal technology background. We have extensive US and Japan-based research, engineering and development experience. All of our analysts have engineering or scientific degrees and are able to quickly identify and comprehend the important aspects of the technology under consideration.
Experienced business managers
In addition to having technical backgrounds our analysts also have advanced business degrees and practical experience in real-world management positions. They understand the difficulties of M&A or joint venture development activity under tight budget and time constraints.
Understanding of Japanese corporate culture and strategy
Having resided and been employed in both Japan and the US our analysts have a unique understanding of the differences between the corporate culture and business strategies employed by both countries.
Presence in US and Japan
We have staff and office locations both in Japan, the East and West Coasts of the US as well as Beijing, Seoul and Singapore. This ensures our clientele a quick response to any inquires as well as convenient accessibility to our services.
Bilingual (English/Japanese) reporting and communications
All of our analysts and country managers are fluent in both English and Japanese allowing for ease of communications and accuracy in translations.
