Our second day in Tokyo began with a visit with Jeremy Shaw, President of Intralink-Japan, a market access and business development firm focused on assisting small and medium size high-tech firms enter the Japanese market. Students and faculty engaged in a stimulating discussion. In particular, gaining a perspective that differed from the government views expressed the first morning by JETRO executives was most interesting. The conversation helped set the tone for the followup discussions that are part of the seminar approach being used for the trip. It also provided a framework for understanding the subsequent business visits later in the trip.
