12 The challenge Japan has the third largest economy in the world. But the population is shrinking and rapidly aging. And the younger generation is under- employed. Source: The Economist © 2011 Ryo Umezawa - Confidential - All Rights Reserved.

13 The solution “Between 1980 and 2005, virtually all net new jobs created in the U.S. were created by firms that were 5 years old or less.” “That is about 40 million jobs. That means the established firms created no new net jobs during that period.” Kauffman Foundation, April 2010 (NY Times) Entrepreneurs are the source of new growth © 2011 Ryo Umezawa - Confidential - All Rights Reserved.

14 However… Japan generates only $3 billion a year in venture funding for about 3,000 investment deals. US start-ups receive $30 billion a year in venture funding for about 4,000 investments. VC investments US: $29.4B, Japan: $2.8B © 2011 Ryo Umezawa - Confidential - All Rights Reserved.

15 The reason Low tolerance for failure Low social status Limited capital Narrow social networks Weak support infrastructure Over-regulation Smart people are discouraged from becoming entrepreneurs in Japan © 2011 Ryo Umezawa - Confidential - All Rights Reserved.
