Partnering with Japan’s blue-chip companies: Reverse pitching series 2nd session with NTT Data


21st October, 2021


09:00 - 10:00 UK Time





Since January the UK has a new Free Trade Agreement with the world’s third largest economy, opening even more opportunities for UK companies to forge partnerships and generate new business in this dynamic Asian country.

Marking this exciting new chapter in trading relations between the UK and Japan, the Department for International Trade and Tech Nation are delighted to announce a launch of first of its kind event called ‘Reverse pitching series’ and invite innovative technology companies in the UK to explore the business opportunities in Japan.

In each session of this series a renowned Japanese blue-chip company is selected as a speaker. In this session NTT Data will give a talk on the technical issues they are currently faced with in order to seek solutions that UK companies could offer to resolve it. The talk is not limited to seeking the solutions for the issues, they are also keen to discover innovative technologies to jointly explore the market in Japan and globally making the most of the network they have. Once you identify the solution(s) to offer, there will be a separate one to one meeting set up between your company and the Japanese company for a detailed discussion.

As this is organised in a business matching format, the discussion is expected to be focused and effective, and the outcome is likely to lead to a partnership within a minimum time.
