July 14th, 2022 marks the 5th anniversary of Plug and Play Japan. What a journey it has been from where we started to where we are now.

What Plug and Play Japan has been able to achieve, and how the Japanese ecosystem has evolved over the last 5 years, is something to be proud of. I want to take this opportunity to first thank all our supporters who have continued to help us achieve our vision of creating the largest innovation platform in Japan.

Our business is nothing without the entrepreneurs who dream of changing the world, our corporate and government partners who seek to achieve game-changing innovation with the help of these entrepreneurs and everyone within the startup ecosystem who share our mission to make innovation open to anyone, anywhere.

I also want to take this opportunity to give a shout out to the Plug and Play Japan team. I cannot say enough that will justify the amount of work, passion, and joy the Plug and Play Japan team members bring daily. Each member is truly unique and remarkable, and I could not be more honored to walk this journey with this team. I hope Plug and Play Japan will continue to be a workplace that people are proud to be a part of and a model for what an exciting, diverse, impactful environment can be.

Japan, and the major cities within, continues to build momentum as a startup ecosystem to be reckoned with as the country has put more emphasis on the importance of startups for the future of Japan. Japan and Tokyo continue to rank higher than ever before on globally recognized startup ecosystem rankings in the past year. There are also more accelerators, incubators, investors, and various startup supporters in Japan than ever before. We hope to embrace our friends who have the same vision as we do, and work with them to achieve success not possible on our own.

There is plenty of work still left. We are far from what we envision we can accomplish and many more projects that are underway.

Our anniversary is a celebration of entrepreneurship and the innovator in all of us. We hope to shed light and recognize everyone who strives to make our lives around us better than it was yesterday.

Here’s to the next 5 years!
